After calling Pluto a malted milk ball left in the rain (ice cream is a theme in the video), Colbert introduces Tyson as one of the biggest Pluto demoters and proceeds to berate the astrophysicist for his lack of love for the dwarf planet. “It’s even got a heart, unlike you,” Colbert says. Tyson defends himself saying that he was only an “accessory” to Pluto’s demotion — an oft repeated claim of his.

Hmmm. Was Tyson’s opinion overrated, the way Carl Sagan’s always was? Would make sense. Would make sense. Hot vs. what? Wow! vs how?
