Pluto got demoted

And someone wrote a doggerel about it. It's pretty clever though.

Seriously, this fucks up the mnemonic I learnt from Heinlein when I was space-crazy back in the 80s (I was precocious, sue me):

Mother Very Thoughtfully Made A Jelly Sandwich Under No Protest

Mercury, Venus, Terra, Mars, Asteroid belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and, err . . . Phubar[1]?


[1] FUBAR is an acronym for Fucked Up Beyond All Repair, which pretty much describes the situation.
Mine was "My Very Easy Method, Just Set Up Nine Planets."

Oh well, imagine if they had gone the other way and now we'd have 12 planets. Sheesh. wtf would represent 2003 UB313?
True, true. In one of my favourite sci-fi novels, though, the invading BEMs used Pluto as a staging area. I'm sure they'd be galled to know that their staging area is no longer a planet.
seriously, i love(d) pluto. wtf.
Damn you, NASA! DAMN YOU!
