Downgrade

As everyone has already heard, Pluto has been downgraded to a "dwarf planet," which means that there are now only eight planets in our solar system.

No more:
Molly's Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodle Pie.

I guess she's just going to have to serve noodles, which isn't nearly as memorable or humorous as 'noodle pie.'

I think the effects of this change from nine to eight planets are only beginning to be seen. With only eight planets circling our sun, the entire balance of the universe as we know it will begin to change.


For example:

Cats now only have eight lives instead of nine.


Want to play half of a round of golf? There are only eight holes now.

Cloud Nine is no longer an option. The best you can get is Cloud Eight.

The German language will actually change. The word for "no" is now prounouced "eiht."

They are completely removing the position of shortstop from baseball.

NIN is getting a manicure of sorts.

The shoe company, Nine West, is doing an entire makeover. Instead, they will be known as Eight East.

A stitch in time is only going to save eight.


Be on the lookout for more downgrades. All because Pluto is being knocked down to a dwarf planet.

This blows...now where can I find the new website for Motel 5 and Super 7?

And does that mean I can now get a 3 series BMW and be cool?

Jeez, when you put it that way it makes me wish I'd lobbied to keep Pluto in planetary status.

Does that mean the song you sing on road trips is now "88 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"? And is the sexual position now a 68?

It's funny on how many sayings there are for remembering the planets:

My very educated mother just served us nine pickles.
