The god of the underworld. Not.

Pluto, poor little (no pun intended) dude. On the one hand, he thinks, because he is the Greek god of the underworld, quite the devil. On the other, though, the planet named after him is, well, not a planet anymore.

In school, I had this little rhyme (well, what else will you call the bloody thing, then?) to help remember the order of the planets. Quite a cool one – it went thusly:

My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets.

I wonder what the kids will sing, henceforth

My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nakku
, says Neha. LOL!

  1. Sheesh.

    My mnemonics dealt with my very excellent mother just serving us nine pies.
    But I suppose it is all the same. I wish they hadn’t started this nomenclature of dwarf planets, though. Xena? The mind boggles. Oh tempora, oh mores!

    May I link to this post? Pretty please? I am posting on the same, poor Pluto being kicked out of the club.

  2. Neha, in full form eh? Hilarious esp the punakku stuff :))

  3. My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nakku. (or Punakku – in case they knock off Neptune and reinstate Pluto)
