I don't care how tiny it is, keep it away from my anus.
2002-10-04 02:11:59 PM  
Let the anus jokes begin!
2002-10-04 02:12:55 PM  
Uranus is gaseous right?

(sorry, had to)
2002-10-04 02:13:25 PM  
Did anyone find the headline of the story amusing?
2002-10-04 02:14:09 PM  
ewww.. I don't EVER wanna read another tagline like that AGAIN... BAD submitter, BAD!
2002-10-04 02:14:13 PM  
"Until 1997, Uranus was the only gas-giant planet in our Solar System without any known small moons. "

2002-10-04 02:15:30 PM  
lance it.
2002-10-04 02:16:21 PM  
If Uranus looks anything like this, I suggest you see a doctor immediately.

that IS pretty damn funny, stern.
2002-10-04 02:17:04 PM  
Thought it would be a dingleberry.
2002-10-04 02:17:11 PM  
Probably a dingleberry.

2002-10-04 02:17:51 PM  
We call those 'dingleberrys'!
2002-10-04 02:18:23 PM  
jesus. headline.

*makes bitter beer face*
2002-10-04 02:19:18 PM  
little known fact..Uranus spins on its side.
2002-10-04 02:19:18 PM  
When our universe formed, the interstellar gasses nearly blew this planet almost out of orbit. It was named Uranus.
2002-10-04 02:19:33 PM  
Damn! Mr_Bastard and Gomer beat me to it!
2002-10-04 02:20:03 PM  
Check to see if it is a willnot
2002-10-04 02:20:04 PM

2002-10-04 02:20:27 PM

(apologies to Bevis @ Butthead fans)
(come to think of it, apologies retracted)
2002-10-04 02:21:44 PM  
No pics, please.
2002-10-04 02:23:10 PM  
Yeah, Heywood, but Mr_bastard beat ME to it. That "/lame" thing at the end of mine probably lost it for me.

"Today is a good day to wipe!"

Mike (over his shoulder to Cambot): Hi, everyone. Mike Nelson here, on the Satellite of Love, with my buddy Crow. You're just in time to see Tom Servo's planetarium show!

Crow: What luck! (Tom, painted black with white spots on his dome, rises slowly from behind the desk, singing the opening notes of "2001: A Space Odyssey")

Tom: ... daaaaa ... BA-DAAAAAA!!! Welcome, space travelers, to the Tom Star Show! Let's all hop on board the Galaxy shuttle, and take a trip through our nation's solar system! We'll be traveling at about the speed of light--yes, well over 500 miles an hour! So, ha ha, fasten your seat belts ... first stop, the planet Mars!

Crow: Take me to ... Uranus!

Tom: Uh, uh, Mars, the brightest star in our galaxy--

Crow: Hey, let's probe ... Uranus!

Tom (irritated): Patience, space traveler! We'll visit ALL the planets--

Crow: What, are you ashamed of ... Uranus?

Tom: Crow! Geez ... I'm trying to do a show here ...(Mike whispers to Crow)

Crow: Uh, excuse me. I have some questions about ... Uranus!

Tom: Let's save our questions for the appropriate question-and-answer--

Crow: Uh, Uranus is big and gassy, isn't it? (Mike and Crow laugh)

Tom: Shut up! But ours is not the only planetary system--

Crow: Servo? We have to get to Uranus, and wipe out the Klingons!

Tom: Shut up! Just shut up! Just shut ... geez! (Tom runs off; Mike and Crow continue to laugh)

Mike: We'll be right back!

Crow: Haha ... heh ... where'd he go?


(Mike, Crow, and Tom stand behind the desk. Tom is his normal color.)

Tom: ...then he just wouldn't let up! I mean, how many jokes about YOUR-unus can a guy make before they just aren't funny?

Mike: Hey, I know! Those kind of jokes are never funny! (Mike takes a sip of soda)

Crow: You know, Servo, I've seen satellite pictures of ...Uranus! (Tom storms off; Mike's soda comes out of his nose while laughing) Ooh ... a noser!

It's hard to see Uranus with a telescope.
2002-10-04 02:28:45 PM  

Just saw the headline. I'm surprised no one started making fun of that yet. I'll get it started.

"New moon for Uranus"
Is that when you shave your ass and paint it a different color?

/lame, i know.
2002-10-04 02:28:49 PM  
It was first seen in August 2001, but quickly lost amid the glare from Uranus.

Heh heh heh heh heh.

2002-10-04 02:29:00 PM  
mars is red, neptune is blue, and, i understand, uranus is green.

must be that lime soda you drank
2002-10-04 02:29:03 PM  
Little known fact 2: Probes have indicated that the winds of Uranus are intermittent, arise suddenly and reach speeds in excess of 400 km/hr
2002-10-04 02:32:18 PM  
400 km/hr? how much is that in real measurement?
2002-10-04 02:35:39 PM  
Albo- wind speed = about 225 balloon knots
2002-10-04 02:35:54 PM  
The joke's lost on me, I guess since I don't pronounce Uranus like 'YOUR-anus'.

Facts about Uranus
2002-10-04 02:37:17 PM  
thanks sternerverse. i guess the wind blows fast around uranus
2002-10-04 02:38:06 PM  
That's no moon... it's a space station.
2002-10-04 02:39:23 PM  
We changed that planet's name b ack in 2567 because we got sick of all the purile jokes.

What's it called now?


2002-10-04 02:39:44 PM  
maybe it is a dingleberry...
2002-10-04 02:40:24 PM  
I feel like an idiot, but I couldn't finish that article because I was laughing too hard. It's been a long day.
2002-10-04 02:40:47 PM  
Is there any way to tell who submitted an article? I've seen people take credit for them in threads before. This headline was pretty damn funny, like the DVDA one from earlier.
2002-10-04 02:40:54 PM  
maybe I should have read the other posts before i posted...
2002-10-04 02:41:24 PM  
I thought they called those dingleberrys.

Little known fact 3: Uranus has 11 known rings around it.
Little known fact 4: Uranus's unusual rotation may be due to a massive collision.
2002-10-04 02:45:36 PM  
According to NASA it took seven years for the voyager probe to reach Uranus!!!!

Hmm. Second image in a GIS for 'Klingon':

I suggest you don't ask. Just keep walking, there, cowpoke. Keeep walking.
2002-10-04 02:49:57 PM  
Good one, guys! Uranus is so goddamn funny!

They changed the official pronunciation to "yer-en-es" a long time ago because of you people. Stop being the enemy of science
2002-10-04 02:52:42 PM  
screw science. i believe in aliens, "free" energy and the healing properties of colloidal silver
