Pluto downsized in planetary reorganization. Current vacancy for job of ninth planet to be outsourced to call center in Bangalore.

“Much-maligned Pluto doesn’t make the grade under the new rules for a planet: ‘a celestial body that is in orbit around the sun, has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a … nearly round shape, and has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit.’

Pluto is automatically disqualified because its oblong orbit overlaps with Neptune’s.”
