“Ever get the feeling that Pluto isn’t being treated fairly?” Venus asked sadly.
“All the time,” Neptune responded. “He was one of us for a long time, but suddenly got booted.”
“I have amazing rings, and I’m still here,” Saturn reflected.
“And I’m totally hot stuff! They couldn’t axe me,” Mercury boasted.
“I feel bad for our friend,” Mars lamented. “How can we help him?”
“Well, we could show him all the Friday Flash Fiction stories dedicated to him here on my planet,” Earth suggested. “He’s a celebrity now.”
“Genius!” Jupiter gushed. “Our buddy will feel better in no time.”
