Its not Mars, Mars is cool and populated entirely by robots.

Its not Jupiter, which almost certainly keeps us from being annihilated by an asteroid.

I vote for Uranus as the worst.

Mercury ... It should be easy to get there .. but actually it's nearly damned impossible and takes forever and it provides nothing no any of us. Screw those assholes out there. Let them freezebake

Fark you Neptune... You blue swirly, diamond raining motherfarker. You think you're so cool because you're so far out and got those swirling spots and shiat. You're nothing but a big blue gassy biatch. I said it. Come at me Neptune... oh that's right you can't because you're all the way out in the outer Solar System and are too chicken shiat to come in past the asteroid belt. Punk ass blue wanna be Jupiter ass mother farker. What are you gonna do about it?

Nobody likes Uranus.  I agree.

I think we can all agree that Venus is pretty hot.

It was never the same after Ceti Alpha four exploded.

Earth. It's full to the brim with insane hairless rage monkies that shiat everywhere constantly.

That's the second Star Trek VI reference I've seen on Fark today

Catachan, or perhaps Cretacia.

Pluto.

None of the others have been kicked out of the club.

It's also unremarkable.

I mean obviously the worst planet is Earth because of all the annoying humans infesting it
Oh look, it's That Guy.

Edgy.

Pluto.  People say it's not a planet and it won't even stand up for itself.

And it can't talk like Goofy can wtf

Alderaan.

out of all the planets I've visited, there was only one that held my child's life hostage for medical bills.

honestly, I don't even like saying the name of that wretched place.

Don't get me started about the Planet Krapton...

Ceti Alpha Six exploded, not four.

Turn in your geek card.

Trenco, hands down.

Other strong contenders include:

Ploor
Eddore
Klendathu
Deathworld

LV-426.

//Nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

Earth > Saturn > Jupiter > Mars > Venus >= Neptune > Mercury > Uranus
 
2019-01-28 01:18:09 PM  
Planet X because we know it's there, but it's being a total pussy and isn't showing itself to us.
 
2019-01-28 01:20:15 PM  
Ok and Klendathu ain't too popular in my book either.

//Would you like to know more?

Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Trenco, hands down.

Other strong contenders include:

Ploor

* I forgot P3W-451.  Having one of your binary suns become a Black Hole really sucks.

I'm glad they considered extrasolar planets at least. 55 Cancri e definitely sounds bad.  I'm not going to judge with my CHNOPS earth-life necessary elemental bias
 
2019-01-28 01:30:22 PM  
From the astronomer's viewpoint - Earth.  The atmosphere completely screws with their observations, and it's got tons of local light pollution you have to work around.  Such a pain in the ass.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Ebola IX


I mean, it sucks but it's not as bad as Dogdoo 8.
 
2019-01-28 01:31:23 PM  
Some simulations have Mercury slamming into the Earth in billions of years which, in my opinion, is rude.
