Editor's Note: Although the scientific community has been trying to get us to all pronounce Uranus as you're-uh-nuss instead of your-anus, the jokes will never die.
Here are a few oneliner insults built around how we really pronounce the planet's name. And, for the most part, around facts about Uranus.
Fifty Earths could fit in Uranus
Uranus is the butt of all jokes
Uranus is out of this world
Uranus is capable of producing hurricane force winds
Uranus is extremely cold
Captain Kirk is on his way to Uranus to wipe out the Klingons
Uranus has only been visited once.
Uranus is 14 time larger than the earth

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
