[sigh] Uranus is actually a very interesting planet, despite all this childishness. It has some of the fastest winds in the Solar System, well over 500 miles per hour. The atmosphere is rich in frozen methane. It has an extensive system of rings, containing some of the darkest material known. And thanks to its extreme axial tilt (bent over at more than 90 degrees) there are regions of Uranus where the Sun doesn't shine for 40 years at a time.

Just as long as the probe isn't cold and they go in slowly.

Did Uranus give consent?

So it "passes wind"? And all that follows.

You could work this into a stand up routine. Be an astronomy professor in a lecture hall trying in vain to maintain dignity while every learned fact he says about "Uranus" undermines it. :lol:

Well, I say it's about time! Aliens have been getting away all this time with probing ours!

One thing I forgot to mention: Uranus also has many fascinating moons. One of them, Miranda, has a unique, deeply cracked surface.

Someone joined NASA just to someday make this joke happen for real.

It can only be pronounced either "your anus" or "urine is". Win-win!

There is a town in Connecticut called Mianus. I wonder if that's where the probe will be launched.

Did I correctly hear that Urethra Franklin will be asked to sing “Until You Come Back to Me” when the probe enters Uranus’ atmosphere?
