POOR PLUTO


A sad little Lizard told me on his Mothers side he had been a Brontosaurus.

Pluto was discovered on this date, March 13, 1930. Pluto used to be a Planet.
Now Pluto is a Dwarf Planet.
All Hail, Pluto!

Hey -- For 76 years Pluto enjoyed an existence as one of the big 9. Maybe instead of viewing it as a demotion, Pluto can just think of it as retiring gracefully...:)

Well, geesh - I guess that makes me a black hole then........HA!

Thanks for clearing that up for me cowboy - seriously - my 6th grader has been telling me for sometimes now that Pluto is not a planet...a whole new meme to come up with.....I suppose I missed the scoop......

that's what happens when you're a black hole.....things get sucked right in and then mashed around and end up......

god knows where???!!!!!

barb- Pluto is still Pluto indeed, and even more famous now! probably can be seen as a frontrunner, ahead of its time and responsible for a defining moment in Astronomy...kinda like you!
Mom-I think you are a Super-Nova!
RDG- You have a gravitational pull much like a Black Hole- you know that if you stick your finger in one that by the time your wrist is in the molecules are lined up one by one and thusly they enter one by one until you are no more! Sweet!

Did you try the black hole thing, Steve? :-)

As far as I'm concerned, Pluto will always be a planet, no matter what the fashionable thought is of the time! The students all had to debate this for months, and I had to find all the paper cuttings for it... I decided I like to think of the nine planets... when you reel them off, there just has to be a Pluto on the end!
