Fake Science Tabloid Reveals Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Universal Scandal”

Over at Fake Science, Neil deGrasse Tyson is in a secret tryst – with Pluto!

Sometimes, it’s the little things that brighten your day.

(Also, can I just be a nerd for a minute and say I would totally read this magazine if it was real? I neeeeeeed the backstory on the Pluto drama. Do you know that the Air and Space Museum covered Pluto in their planets installation with a sheet of paper?)

(H/T Gene, who likes teasing Neil stans.)

    There’s a book about the Pluto scandal called “How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming!” http://www.amazon.com/How-Killed-Pluto-Why-Coming/dp/0385531109

    I’m so in love with this. I’m cracking up at how Scandal-Neil eschews his trademark, badass planetary vest in favor of something from Carlton Banks’ wardrobe for his clandestine trysts. Like you, Latoya, I would be a subscriber!
