You have to feel kinda bad for the little guy. First scientists laud him as the newest planet. Then they argue about him for 70 years. Now they say, “Sorry mister, you’re just not one of us,” and kick him out of the galactic club. No solar system club privileges for him any more. No more golfing with Mars or sunning by the pool with Mercury. No more mixed doubles with Venus and Jupiter. He and Saturn were starting to show some real promise as tennis players, but it’s all over now.
Now, he merely has star status. And don’t get me wrong Paris Hilton has made it her life’s quest to attain mere star status, but once you’ve had a taste of the planetary life, it’s got to be hard to go back.
