Cranial Nerve: Plu-Perfect

Pluto, the dwarf planet so shamed barely a decade ago by insensitive “scientists” and “scholars” is this week exacting its revenge and then some. “Bitch, I’m a planet, and LOOK AT ME!,” Pluto was quoted as saying, accompanied by photo spreads in most major news outlets. With its exquisite spherely shape, the planet is indeed glorious.

But enough planet-lechery. I wanted to touch on Pluto in a way that would neither contribute to the certain media oversaturation nor render me pathetically scraping the bottom of the barrel with Disney’s sub-par Goofy.

What I bring to the table this week—to be up to date in a way that completely skirts an in-depth look at current events—is a fill-in-the-blanksian affair wherein each answer will be a word that either rhymes with, contains, or otherwise resembles the proper noun “Pluto.”

Example:

Q: A Parcheesi-like game that no one’s ever heard of.

A: Ludo (It rhymes with “Pluto.” If you can’t tell, please look into “Hooked on Phonics.”)

There will be “hint” buttons below each question. If you click on these buttons, they will give you hints. Ain’t no shame, ladies, do your thang.

With love, from me, to Plu.*

    Well, today I learned that I don’t know how to spell Menudo. I got it right this time though (I think). Didn’t realize it was spelled the same as the soup.

    ETA: total spoiler. Sorry. Everyone from now on who reads this comment gets -1 point.

      You know you can see the correct answers if you click “view questions” at the end, right? I wonder if there’s a way to make that more obvious…

        I saw the right answers on some questions, not all. I do view the questions after because I’m really interested in what I don’t know.

    I would have gotten them all but I am heartless, revisionist scum. Also I guessed “punch” for number three.
