    In response to the news on August 24 that a team of astronomers have demoted Pluto to "dwarf planet" status, the Seven Dwarfs themselves take time to issue a statement, via their friends at the
    Walt Disney World Resort:
    "Although we think it's Dopey that Pluto has been downgraded to a dwarf planet, which has made some people Grumpy and others just Sleepy, we are not Bashful in saying we would be Happy if Disney's Pluto would join us as an eighth dwarf. We think this is just what the Doc ordered and is nothing to Sneeze at."
