Pluto is fighting back

In Illinois, Pluto is still a planet.

They decided upon this about three years after the original decision. It's good to see that public opinion has some sway. But we can't stop at this! This is only the first step! We must keep fighting against those fiendish oppressors, those dastardly demons of dementia, those hideously horrid harbingers of horrendous higglty-pigglty, (yes, I'm running out of H words) the International Astronomical Union.

But, to be perfectly fair, and to bring to light a little-known fact, the entire IAU didn't condone the demoting of Pluto from 'planet' to a mere 'dwarf planet'. In fact, only 4% of the group voted on the matter. That's right, 4 percent. Maybe with a little more effort, we can change things back to their natural order once more. We need only raise public awareness.

  1. Sounds like an incredibly scientific decision.

    Way to go IL
