I’m glad they (for the most part) have a good sense of humor about it. The stuffed shirts making budget decisions might look poorly on it, but humor and education are fabulous bedfellows. Plus, everyone loves making terrible jokes, so media coverage for anything Uranus-related is virtually guaranteed.

While I’m a little leery about someone saying “I embrace Uranus”, I’m at an age where I’d be appreciative of someone saying “I’d like to fund Uranus”, as not everything works the way it used to. :blush:

I’m still waiting for someone to name a newly discovered planet: Butthole Pucker. Might take some of the stress off Uranus.

63 Earths can fit inside Uranus. 64 if you relax.

Something absolutely huge slammed into Uranus when it was still young, causing it to tilt dramatically and spin on its side.

The incredible damage to Uranus and the mass of loose material that was produced by the crash would have coalesced into a ball,

Its funny because the name of the planet is similar to the part of the body that the waste from food digestion comes out of. It is very funny. I often laugh when I hear about two things whose names sound similar, when they aren’t in fact similar things. Like the word “dug” and the name “Doug.” See! Very funny.

We wouldn’t have this problem if they’d stuck with Herschel’s original, better name of “The Georgian Planet”

Wait, is that the correct number if you relax?

Asking for a friend.
