Mnemonic


[y-] Yoshi is in [1] front of the [-a] auditorium where he is busking for change. He has someone put a bunch of stuff on top of him, applying 壓 pressure, to show how strong he is. A 厂 cliff's worth of 土 soil, a 日 sun, a 月 moon are all on top of him, applying tons of 壓 pressure. Those lined up for tickets start clapping and cheering, but even that figurative 壓 pressure of their expectation does not phase Yoshi. A 犬 bulldog comes over and licks his face, which helps reduce some of the psychological 壓 pressure of being under so much physical 壓 pressure.
