Relevant and lol-inducing:
Cue deranged Plutophile whose life’s work seems to be crusading to have Pluto be declared a planet while the rest of us look on in bemused apathy…3…2…1…
Awwww. The artist needs to have pluto sitting at a table with other little dwarf planets. Pluto’s new buddies Sedna, Eris, Orcus, Makemake, Haumea, Qaoar, and Varuna. He always felt kind of inadequate around those big planets with all their talk of atmosphere and sunlight and heat. He and his new playmates have lots of common ground…oddly shaped orbits and ice!
The Kuiper Belt Object table….where moons come in “best friend” size.
Gratuitously goading the faitheists, I see.
I think it was in a part of Desmond Morris’ documentary The Naked Ape where on a playing field somewhere in Armenia one little boy was not allowed to participate in a game of football. All his friends were chosen to play in one of the two teams. You saw him watching behind the fence as his friends were playing football. Heartbreaking!
Originally I didn’t really care that much. Seeing this, though, brings a tear to my eye. Poor pluto!
Ok, that’s just disturbing…I come here, see that picture – see poor little Pluto, sitting all alone…ALL ALONE!!!!Like what?…Eris was unavailable!!!!
But then, as I get fixin to mention how sad I felt for Pluto – there’s fucking Greg…Apparently I just can’t win.
(It does make me rather sad – and fucker!!! I ACTUALLY CARED!!!!)
And just what the fuck did Pluto do to YOU man!!! It’s not like there wasn’t room at the planetary table for Eris too – and if not, build a bigger table…
I will nut rest until Pluto regains her rightful statioor as a REAL planet. Because PLUTO is a REAL PLANET!!!! HATERS!!!!
LOL I saw this shirt on woot.com today!
It’s cute and funny, but thankfully, the planets do not abide by the decisions of 424 members of a strange group of Earth residents known as the IAU. The solar system is a big tent, and all planets are welcome at the table. The “you’re not one of us anymore” is just human projection of our own exclusiveness onto others who are not like us.
Pluto is a planet, now and forever!
Yay! Big tent!
(Someone recently reposted a cartoon with Pluto complaining about have to sit at the little planets’ table.)
Pluto is a dirty little whore! Look at her in that incestuous relationship with her own damn brother!
(Sorry for the implied misogyny, but it was not my decision to make Pluto female for the purpose of this sesssion of mockery. Of course, I’m sure it’s also misogynistic that I automatically think of Pluto as male, myself.)
And just WTF!!!11!!! is wrong with dirty little whores?!?!?
Over at my post on M&K’s complete miss on their presentation of the Pluto affair,there are no cool T-shirts, but there is a very nice song about Pluto’s demotion. (Waves to Laurel, who turns up in my comments section).
Hi, Ian. I love the song by Jimmy and the Keys, especially the last line, “424 up to no good!” A lot of great songs about Pluto have been written these last few years.
