Twelve -- Count 'Em -- Twelve Planets

Well, at least we will have twelve planets and probably more soon if the current IAU proposal to define a planet (more or less) as a spherical body that orbits the sun is voted in. I think the definition is being a bit too inclusive. Something like Ceres or Pluto that is part of the orbiting rubble collection probably shouldn't be a planet.
