Fred's Burning Question About Pluto Answered

Courtesy of Jesse McKinley and The New York Times:


Sure enough, some people also asked the existential questions that the cosmos typically inspires. Why did this happen? What does it mean? And, of course, how does this affect Mickey Mouse’s dog?

Soon after the announcement from the astronomical union, Disney executives were peppered with questions about whether Pluto’s planetary status would affect Mickey’s sidekick. The answer was no.

“He’s taking the news in stride,” said Lisa Haines, a spokeswoman for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
Even at Disney, though, it seemed that people were distancing the cosmic outcast.

“Pluto was not necessarily named after Pluto the planet,” Ms. Haines said. “We’ve got absolutely nothing on record that even draws a connection between the two. And we’re certainly not changing Pluto’s name.”


Fred hopes he won't get sued by the Disney Megalith for posting that cute pic of Pluto.
