On 24 August 2006, Pluto was demoted from the former ninth planet of the solar system to the status of dwarf planet. Yes it’s nine years today since Pluto got “plutoed”. In the year of the demotion, the American Dialect Society vetoed the word plutoed – which it defined as to denote or devalue someone or something – as its word of the year. But we are standing by Pluto, which like the artist formerly known as Prince has its own symbol, known as the PL monogram. We have put the spotlight on a cosmic purple rain wrap with an atmospheric belli band. More power to you asteroid number 134340.
