So they find a new object in the Kuiper Belt and nickname it Buffy... after the Vampire Slayer maybe? Honestly, who thinks of these things?

In all seriousness though, this is a pretty amazing discovery, definitely one of a kind. The fact that the orbit is so unique from any other object in the Kuiper Belt should leave plenty of room for some interesting conversations among astronomers and physicists, don't you think?

Definitely check the original article out and make sure to take a look at the 3D modeling mpeg they have on the site, puts things into perspective a little better.
