Believe it or not, I actually had this conversation. Well, somewhat. We cartoonists have a knack for personifying anything in the name of comedy: animal, vegetable, planetary object. And when discussing when Pluto was declared a dwarf instead of a full-fledged planet, I found myself sympathizing with poor lil’ Pluto who was playing with the big boys and was suddenly, cruelly, ousted… tossed to the side. Think of all those future science classes, where teach and kids alike mock and make jokes about ol’ pathetic Pluto. It really pulls at the ol’ heart strings. Well, if you’re like Fred, that is.
