Link System In an example given by Darren Brown, the first three items are: telephone, sausage, monkey. His first picture is of someone trying to dial an old-fashioned phone by using a flaccid sausage; his second picture is of sausage being cooked over a barbecue by a monkey in the jungle; his third picture is of a trained monkey doing up the buttons on your shirt. The link system is used for remembering a list of random things in the exact order in which you wish to recall them.
