Can't we take a vote????

I mean, a vote is the democratic way. Why should one group of men sit around and decide the planetary fate of the whole universe? What about a Grandfather Clause? I mean come on! Its been acknowledged as a planet for years and years.

How am I going to remember the planets now? Do you all recall....

My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas

Which represented:

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.

I'll probably say the same thing but then correct myself... "Neptune and Pluto...oh oops! Thats right, Plutos not a planet anymore.

So how will kidlets in science classes around the world recall the planets now......My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us.....

Nicotine??? Nah, she would not be very educated then
Nothing??? Nope, again that would show a lack of education in our starvation
Nerds??? Tooth rot and decay here we come....not a very smart Mother
Nutella??? The Swiss rejoice but those with nut allergies perish

I think that we should listen to what the masses have to say....a world wide vote to restore the status of our beloved little Pluto as our 9th planet!

*sigh* I really need to come back to reality as the "educated" egg heads have spoken.....

Pluto....we will miss you!!

I know. I get it as well, but... I just don't get it. I thought the astronomer's were smarter than this. It took this long?

I'm glad they killed Pluto. He was annoying. Plus keeping him meant adding all the Pluto sized masses that are out there and there are thousands. Thy memorizing that.

just dropped in from another blog. funny, in school, we learned it as "Mary's violet eyes made John stay up nights proposing." Well, the elimination of Pluto makes that sentence actually make more sense.

ps: I love your French market bag!

I find it disturbing that they're removing a planet. And what happened? Did pluto lose weight and become oo small to warrant planet status...it's all just...odd.
