Cartoonists decide fate of Disney’s Pluto

In a shocking vote following much private debate, cartoonists decided that Disney’s dog , Pluto, was in fact, not qualified to be a dog.

This news comes not long after the former 9th planet Pluto was demoted to a “dwarf planet.” This decision left many wondering if a raincoat is still a coat, and a cell phone is still a phone, why isn’t a dwarf planet still a planet? Astronomers put on a front of support for the popular Disney dog, but apparently cartoonists had other feelings.

One cartooninst, who wished to remain anonymous was quoted as saying, “Come, on, Pluto, a dog??? That’s just goofy!”

Cartoonists are yet to come up with a classification for the popular non-speaking Disney former pooch, but it could have effects that stretch to other cartoon dogs.

  1. The world as we know it will never be the same. My former students used to complain that they hated English grammar because no sooner had you learned a rule than it changed on you. Now, no discipline is safe. šŸ˜‰

    Very clever, Scott. Have a great week!

  2. Thanks for dropping in, Ruth!

    To bring the story up-to-date, Pluto has appealed being labeled as a “dwarf dog.” For one, it creates an association that he is uncomfortable with (you might say it was something to sneeze at šŸ™‚ ) On another count, Mickey Mouse is near the same size as Pluto in the cartoons. Hardly a dwarf. Add that to the Plutos walking about the Disney theme parks.

    The committee of cartoonists has recognized this and is continuing to work out the details of Pluto’s new designation.
