Planet haters get their way

Pluto is no more, relegated to a minor dwarf planet a mere Kuiper Belt Object.
This week the International Astronomical Union has done away with poor old cold Pluto.
I fondly remember sitting with dad on our deck as a child making scale model solar systems out of gum leaves. Part of a life long fascination with science that eventually lead me to university to study science with a view to becoming an astronomer.

When pluto gets wind of this, it's going to jump orbit and come for us. Hide your valuables.

I hear that the Plutonians may lodge a formal protest soon.
