The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra

Have you heard the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra?

"The Vegetable Orchestra performs music solely on instruments made of vegetables. Using carrot flutes, pumpkin basses, leek violins, leek-zucchini-vibrators, cucumberophones and celery bongos, the orchestra creates its own extraordinary and vegetabile sound universe. The ensemble overcomes preserved and marinated sound conceptions or tirelessly re-stewed listening habits, putting its focus on expanding the variety of vegetable instruments, developing novel musical ideas and exploring fresh vegetable sound gardens. "

Eight planets + five dwarf planets = PARTYYYY

Some time ago, Pluto was demoted from "planet" to "dwarf planet". But that doesn't mean we have to kick it out of the planet party! Why not just make it a "planet/dwarf planet" party and invite the other dwarf planets in for more fun? Instead of shrinking, the list now grows, thus:

Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars
Ceres
Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune
Pluto
Haumea
Makemake
Eris

It needs a new mnemonic now, of course. How about this:

"My very earnest mother can jump straight up now; phone home, mother, earnestly!"
