Goodbye, Sweet Pluto

Last week the International Astronomical Union (IAU), who coincidentally sounds like all the members are extremely huge, voted Pluto out of the club. Pluto is officially a “dwarf planet” now, instead of the real deal.

It did not take long for The Sun to craft a heartfelt goodbye letter and the planetary mnemonic devices to be corrected. My favorite being: My Volkswagen Emits Mick Jagger Songs Until Noon.

We all know why this really happened…

One Response to “Goodbye, Sweet Pluto”

  1. I just keep picturing Donald Trump sitting at a big table with all the planets, and telling Pluto, “You’re fired.”

    And then in anger it crashes into his skull and kills him.
