Homer Sexual Won't Be Going to Pluto

A rocket ship called New Horizons will be launching for Pluto in the next few days and onboard is a list of nearly half a million names to introduce the people of Earth to anyone who might care out there in Pluto-land. The list is available online and apparently contains more than a few jokes--all of Bart Simpson's prank calls to Moe's are on there save for Homer Sexual, which the censors apparently screened out. Yes, we are the people of Earth: Mike Rotch and his buddy Jacques Strap, Hugh Jass, and party boy Al Coholic. Beautiful.

Coincidentally, the ship is powered by some 24 pounds of plutonium. A rocket to Pluto that runs off plutonium. Nice.
