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.
