Plutonic serenade

The inimitable Jonathan Coulton has penned a touching tribute to Pluto, narrated by the non-planet's moon Charon:
Let them shuffle the numbers
Watch them come and go
We’re the ones who are out here
Out past the edge of what they know
We can only be who we are
It doesn’t matter if they don’t understand
It's really very sweet, which is something it's easy to forget Coulton's good at; more usually, he is good at making my officemate think I'm crazy because of my hysterical cackling. I challenge you to, for instance, watch the "Flickr" video with a straight face (hint: you can't), but it's also pretty tough to read the "I'm Your Moon" lyrics without choking up a little.

If, y'know, you like Pluto.
