    1. Once you hang around Penwasser Place a while, you'll see that, while you can take the boy out of junior high school, you can't take junior high school out of the man.
      Well, THIS man, anyway.

  2. I like how they tried to change the pronunciation from "Your-anus" to "Your-a-nuss" but no one is adopting except scientists because it's so fun to say Uranus.

      I should embroider that on a pillow.

  9. For a moment I thought you were talking about my anus and I thought what the hell what is wrong with my anus and how would you know anything about my anus but then the light bulb came on and I read the post and nothing about my anus at all so I am feeling better.

  10. Sadly, I almost told the "Klingons on Uranus" joke, too. 'Cause I'm mature like that...

  11. Oddly this may be the best way to teach kids about the planets. I wish Pluto could come out and play
