5 Things That Need a Downgrade Like Pluto

Sunday, August 27, 2006

Last week, the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto of its official status as a planet. Here are five other things we'd really like to see demoted.

1. "Godfather III." This "film" is just not worthy of "Godfather" status.

2. Gluttony. If it remains a deadly sin, a lot of us are in trouble.

3. Tour de France/100 yard dash. Not a sport if winners keep getting busted for 'roids.

4. Segways. Try walking, pal.

5. Tom Cruise. Downgrade to a B-list actor . . . oh wait, already done. Thanks, Paramount.
