Pluto gets a demotion

And the universe weeps

You know, just because Pluto doesn’t meet all the qualifications for “planet status” doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be a planet. I think Pluto is being discriminated against by the overly-agressive International Astronomical Union. Pluto should be given “victim” status accordingly – if that happens, this could become a key issue in the fall elections, as the Democrats would have the chance rally around yet another helpless ‘victim.’

Pluto, we hardly knew ya:
