Pluto reclassified as "dwarf planet"

Dwarf planet? I think those astronomers have been spending too much time watching Disney cartoons. Why not the relatively neutral "minor planet" or the geek-chic-sounding "planetoid?" If they're determined to have a Disney theme, why not "Mickey Mouse planet" or "Disney world" or "waltoid?"

Dwarf planet. I don't like it. I feel bad for Pluto and all the future dwarf planets in our solar system.
