Pluto No Longer a Planet

Pluto demoted from planet status; other eight members of solar system cite constant 'staying out late', 'refusal to tidy up room'; 'I can change, I can beat this,' says Pluto; former planet's agent reports interest from Alpha Centauri and Cassiopeia galaxies but no firm offers as yet; retired schoolteacher Venetia Burney Phair loses status as only living person to have named a planet, gained in 2002 on death of her sister Hetty, who named the earth in 1928 after accidentally discovering it by pointing her telescope the wrong way.
