This Counts as Tomorrow's Post
I've noticed today that some other bloggers (such as IATMWWFFYO) have a problem with the name of the newly discovered "planetoid," or weak-ass planet. Scientists have dubbed it "Sedna," after an Inuit deity, which brings up many intriguing questions; for example, will the mnemnonic device now need to be amended to "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas, Stupid"?

However, WULAD's undercover NASA spies tell us that there were as many as ten (top!) other names in the running. Therefore we proudly present, with all appropriate copyright infringement precautions...

The “I Can’t Believe It’s Not the Top Ten®” Runner-Up Names for the New Planetoid, Sedna

10. Seddonit

9. Segway

8. Sajak

7. Sedgwick

6. Right Sedna Fredna

5. Sezyou

4. Earth 2: Electric Boogaloo

3. Oprah

2. Smegma

... And the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not the Number One®” Runner-Up Name for the New Planetoid, Sedna:

1. Edna

Addendum: According to scientists, "Very little has happened to this object since the beginning of the solar system... It really has just been sitting out there at 400 degrees below zero for the past 4.5 billion years." Sounds a little like my sex life in college! Ba-dum-bump!
