Pluto Gets the Shaft

What did Pluto really do to you people to make you de-planetize it? Seriously, are we all better off now that Pluto is now just a moon or large asteroid? Are people walking around going, "Whew! Thank God! I didn't think I could take it any more!"

No. I don't think so.

Two things are going on here: This is a PR move by astronomers to show the world how badass they really are ("Don't piss us off our we'll downgrade your planetary status!"). Oooohhh - I'm shakin!

The second thing is, you just know Karl Rove had a hand in this somehow to take some of the heat off Bush (just like he did when he orchestrated last week's Jon Benet/John Karr scandal).

And the "Kick 'Em When They're Down" award goes to William Kole of the AP: ...because nobody likes being called "dinky."

And in other news...
Did anyone else notice the new Blogger logo? What is that, a schnauzer?

I had a buddy email me all bummed out about Pluto losing planet status. So I said, "You a Pluto man? I always had you pegged as a Jupitor man." To which he responded, "You know I always loved Uranus." Predictable, maybe. Funny, for sure.

Hey, Cherry, I fell behind on commenting, but I DID post a list of shit songs on the comments a few blogs ago.

Regarding that blogger logo, they got rid of that crap real quick like. For a second I thought it was the Insane Clown Posse jugaloo, gross.

I totally think this is a Karl Rove thing too! (I tell people that and they think I'm crazy.)

I think it was actually probably orchestrated by Michael Eisner because of the nasty boot he got from disney. But why'd he have to go and hurt the poor cute little puppy's feelings?

"...because nobody likes being called 'dinky.'"

I know I sure don't.
