Now that Pluto has been officially booted off the solar system, and not even considered a planet, I wonder what or who could be next?
What kind of world is this where a bunch of scientists can get together and decide to boot planets? Does this mean we’re going to blow up Pluto? Are we going to take all of Iran’s nukes and blow it up? I think it’s high time we get some clarification here.
And what exactly is this process like? Was there a vote? Is this some sort of a secret society?
I imagine the meeting went like this:
Waldo: “Hey Jim, we need to get some publicity for our product, Plutonium.”
Jim: “Hmmm, you’re right. What if we booted Pluto from the solar system?”
Waldo: (eating a sandwich) “Mmmffmmememnmormfff, ok.”
And that’s how it probably went down. One planet at a time, they’ll boot ’em for marketing reasons. What one could be next? Will Mercury go next, just because of global warming?
