BREAKING NEWS - Sun no longer designated a "star"

Leading scientists met today to finalize definitions of "stars" and have determined that Sol, the central celestial body in our solar system, is too small, puny and yellow to actually be considered a true "star". Comparisons to red and blue giants such as Rigel and Betelgeuse hastened this decision. Opposition from astronomers and astro-physicists was light, due to the fact that there just wasn't enough of it. Light, that is.

Our Sun will now officialy be known by the designation of "turnip".

Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.
