pluto (v) – to demote or devalue something (as happened to the former planet Pluto when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto no longer met its definition of a planet and demoted it to its present status as a ‘dwarf planet’ or a ‘plutoid’.)

The decision to recognize this new meaning for the word ‘pluto’  was made by the American Dialect Society, a noble institution that has been nitpicking word usage for 117 years.  ‘Pluto’ was their 2006 word of the year.

Well that's just weird.

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”

Nature is joyful and filled with wild delight – but flowers are the happiest of all.
