Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to the red 'Oort cloud' that NASA scientists found a while ago. The new
planet in our solar system is 3/4 the size of Pluto and was christened... 'Sedna'. I don't care about mythological references... what a stupid name!
I heard of Sedna in the classroom.
NASA's on the wrong track.
Their planet names are awful.
Uranus was a crack!

(But woe behold it)
They termed it 'Sedna'. I can't condone.
Oh, a blunder. Oh, I groan.
If there's a moral, the name: change it.
You might be sorry if more planet names are slack.

They say that Sedna is an 'Oort cloud'.
8 billion miles away.
Unfortunately like some stale socks,
It's name is here to stay.
I am nearly in mourning,
The lame title I hate.

(Pluto's forgotten:)
They termed it 'Sedna'. Christened by loons.
A thole which menders know aint sewn.

This crimson planet makes me incensed.
Was this baptising unmanned?
Cuz if another unbearable name
Is a blunder and is biting: darn it!

I'll burn up NASA, congress, beureaus...
Cuz I am cursin' Sedna's nome.
I'm pretty sure nome fits in. I know of 'misnomers'.... *Don't kill me*

Sorry, comment jotter, but considering that you lack knowledge of sentence structure and punctuation, I'm going to assume you lack the ability to critique a parody. Everyone else loved it, dear. Especially me, and I agree - Sedna? Not only is that a severly messed-up name, it's an Inuit goddess. All the other ones are Roman, ain't they? C'mon, NASA...this isn't rocket science. *ba-dum ching!*

Thank you alvin rhodes, Melhi, EmiLoca and e e cummings (are you related to e e goings?) I have some strange hunch that Inuit mythology says that Sedna as being forced to marry a dog by her father. Maybe NASA thought it would be funny, seeing it's closest to the planet 'Pluto'. Oh, and I think e e cummings is right, comment jotter did not use punctuation for the reason that excessive consumption of one's faeces causes mental retardation.

Oh poopikins, I just noticed. It's meant to be 'a hole which menders know aint sewn'. Don't know how a 't' managed to find its way in there.

DKTOS....but the writing was.....a learning experience. I was wondering about that "thole" line. REDO IT. ALL OVER.
