Pluto is Not a Planet

Perhaps even more astounding than SUPERBLOG!!'s finding that a Volvo is far less dangerous than Vagina Dentata is the recent decision that Pluto totally sucks:

About 2,500 scientists meeting in Prague have adopted historic new guidelines that see the small, distant world demoted to a secondary category. [...] The International Astronomical Union's (IAU) decision means textbooks will now have to describe a Solar System with just eight major planetary bodies.

Pluto, which was discovered in 1930 by the American Clyde Tombaugh, will be referred to as a "dwarf planet".

Ha ha! Sucks to be Clyde! And I pity the owners of this and similarly titled websites.

This is an outrage. What's next? Beer is not food? WE'RE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS HERE PEOPLE.

Pluto the planet was discovered on february 18, 1930, while Pluto the dog made his first appearance in the black-and-white Disney short "The Chain Gang" which premiered on september 5 the same year. Kind of cool, knowing stuff like that.
