…Pluto got plutoed?

Pluto Replies

In what must have been a very difficult decision making process, the American Dialect Society has chosen Plutoed as the 2006 Word of the Year. Defined as “to demote or devalue someone or something, as happened to the former planet Pluto when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto no longer met its definition of a planet”, Plutoed makes sure that the last planet will stay in our hears and our vocabulary for a long time to come. Though I do like their choice, I think climate canary got Plutoed into second place.
