Ok, maybe it’s not the Derp Singularity, but Trump aquires a new orbiting moon - Palin, and now there’s a new planet in town? Do I have to draw you a picture sheeple?

The overflow of Trump’s ego is parked out there. That’s what the smaller bodies are orbiting.

Well, it’s nice to have a ninth planet again.

I hope they name it Xenu. The $cientologist$ will get trolled and ¡Jeb! will drive them even crazier by pronouncing it Xanadu.

a recent paper from planet-hunter Mike Brown, who said that while there aren’t likely to be any bright, easy-to-find objects, there could be dark ones “lurking far away.” Now, a group of astronomers from the UK and Spain maintain at least two planets must exist beyond Neptune and Pluto in order to explain the orbital behavior of objects that are even farther out, called extreme trans-Neptunian objects (ETNO).
the most accepted theory of trans-Neptunian objects…differs from what is actually observed…“This excess of objects with unexpected orbital parameters makes us believe that some invisible forces are altering the distribution of the orbital elements of the ETNO,” said Carlos de la Fuente Marcos, scientist at UCM and co-author of the study, “ and we consider that the most probable explanation is that other unknown planets exist beyond Neptune and Pluto.”
He added that the exact number is uncertain, but given the limited data that is available, their calculations suggest “there are at least two planets, and probably more, within the confines of our solar system.”

Kolob?

If President Romney actually got elected in somewhere other than Fantasyland, he’d probably order it named Kolob.

Can we please name it Pluto just to cut down on idiotic arguments?

Stupid science - using science and being all scienciety. Inferring the existence of something based on observation of other stuff. Sounds like another global warming hoax to keep the grant money flowing! WAKE UP LIBTARDS!

So, that’s where the Republicans are coming from?

Name it Hades to create more idiotic arguments. >:)

When Trump is President everyone will be required to say “Planet Pluto” again, like Thomas Jefferson intended.

The astronomers inferred the Republican Party’s presidential hopes from the motion of nearby dwarf candidates and other small politicians, whose orbits appear to have been shaped by the gravity of a much larger candidate they’ve dubbed Trumpus Ridiculum.
