Mnemonic fail!

You know the law of Usenet that any spelling flame will itself contain a spelling error? I just ran across something similar on a post about kitchen mnemonics:
A quart means a quarter of a gallon. Or was that so obvious that it's not worth pointing out? Also, 4 cups in a quart, easy to remember since quart means four. (On a smaller scale, same theme, four ounces in a quarter cup.)
Oops.
