Alas Poor Pluto We Thought We Knew You Well

––When they delisted Pluto as a planet did no one realize you can’t make an arrangement with an even number of things? Aren’t there gay astronomers?

Birds drooping from the sky after dying mid-flight, fish dying en mass in rivers like the Arkansas, and the GOP talking about getting rid of the EPA: we may regret delisting Pluto as a planet as this is sure to have hurt its feelings and we may need it as a back up.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad thinks astronomy’s declassification of Pluto as a planet is a western solar system gravity-skewing plot to tilt Iran so its nuclear facilities will roll out of their caves into plain site.
