Pluto's not a planet!!!!

Oh my! The education I've received is worthless!! All my life I've been led to believe that there are 9 planets! There are no longer 9 planets in our solar system! There are only 8. Scientists have recently decided that Pluto no longer qualifies as a planet!

For more details, check this out:

How will children remember the order?! I was taught the acronym "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas"....... Now it's just "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine". That makes no sense at all! We need a new Solar Systm acronym! I'm gonna try to think of one.......Let me know if you have any brilliant ideas......

WHAT?!?! Incredible news. I'm glad i never studied for the tests, and couldn't name all the planets anyway.
How was the trip?
