Disable mass Pluto.

HOUSTON, Texas - Pluto has done it again. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced this morning that the 'dwarf planet' Pluto would be downsized to a 'disabled mass'. NASA also said "We are still considering lowering it to O'Donnell Status". O'Donnell Status derives its name from TV host Rosie O'Donnell and means 'a large floating mass of nothing and tells terrible jokes'.

NASA Administrator Michael Griffin says "this decision was based off the information that Pluto has been [out casted] by the other 8 planets" he went on to say " Pluto had its run".

Former President Bush agreed with the decision, and stated "I think this decision was made off the correct assumption that planet America is the only planet that Earth needs".

He later retracted his statements saying "I knew what I was [talking] about and what meant was America is the only country Earth needs". He later retracted his retractment saying "For NASA, space is still a high priority".

In any case, Pluto will now be reffered to as a 'disabled mass'.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
