Pluto Humor

As many of you know, last week I announced the existence of the Society for the Preservation of Pluto as a Planet. Our goal is a simple one: to try and make sure that Pluto remains one of the planets of the solar system, no matter how planet is defined. We're serious about our desire to have Pluto remain a planet, but we also tend to acknowledge that there can be humor in the debate.

In what I presume is a response to SP3, some unknown wag has created Demote Pluto!, a website advocating the opposite of what we advocate. I have to admit that I find the website most amusing, especially the part where they suggest that the only solution to the problem is to


LOAD MULTIPLE CLUSTERED 100-MEGATON YIELD THERMONUCLEAR WARHEADS ONTO A SPACECRAFT CALLED NEW HORIZONS II AND AIM IT AT PLUTO AND CHARON! THEY MUST DIE! ONLY THEN CAN THE SOLAR SYSTEM REST SECURE!


I encourage any and all Pluto supporters to visit the website and laugh. And be glad that at least we are brave enough to put our names on record.

You remember DC's "Our Worlds as War" storyline from five years ago? In that saga, Imperiex or Mongul II - I can't recall - turned Pluto into the new Warworld. At story's end, Pluto/Warworld was destroyed, presumably leaving the DC solar system with only eight planets.

Looks Mr. Demote Pluto is worried that Imperiex will come to our timeline.
I tend to feel that destroying planets or making fictional characters president in the DC universe works against reader identification. But hey, that's me.
