News item: Pluto Designated for Assignment

Pluto: You wanted to see me, Skip?

Skip: C'mon in and shut the door...

Skip: This is the toughest job a manager has to do. But the organization has decided to make a change. You've been designated for assignment.

Pluto: Skip, I know I'm in a slump but I can turn it around. A couple of comets drop in, and I'm back in the groove!

Skip: I put in a word for you with the organization--told 'em I thought you'd make a fine moon someday.

Pluto: I've only been on the team since 1930. I'd have liked to at least have finished my first orbit.

Skip: There might be an opening at Alpha Centauri next year...

Fun Pluto trivia: In the seventy some-odd years since it was discovered, Pluto's only made it about a third of the way around the solar system.
