How not to think of an elephant

You know that trick some people do where they tell you not to think of an elephant, and suddenly the thought of an elephant pops into your head and you've lost the game instantly?

I've got a solution to that: I have associated the words "don't think of an elephant" in my mind with the image of a chicken. So if anyone says "Don't think of an elephant", my immediate reaction is something like: "Okay. Chicken! Chicken chicken chicken. Feathers, beak, claws, scratching in the dirt, buck-buck-b'kaw, red wattles jiggling as it cocks its head from side to side. Hmm, what was it you wanted me not to think of, again? I've forgotten."
