Planet of the lesbians

These days I'm in a constant search for sources of levity.

This article from ABC News may do the trick for today. It appears that the long-debated tenth planet in our solar system, which is officially known as 2003 UB313 but is nicknamed Xena, has an orbiting satellite. And scientists have named it Gabrielle.

I like the part where the Cal Tech guy says, "Having a moon is just inherently cool." What a geeky thing to say.

This is a major development for the lesbian agenda. It seemed unfair that the one planet named for a gay icon (aside from Mercury, I guess, and don't get me started on Uranus) was out and about but all alone. But now we've found its cute little blonde companion. Battle on, Xena!

It cannot succeed in actual fact, that is exactly what I think.
