Funny, because you'd think it'd be brown...

Maybe it's just me being 12 years old and all, but, I can just imagine the Yahoo headline writer giggling as he wrote...

• Newly discovered ring around Uranus is blue

I mean, seriously. That's just comedy gold right there, am I right?

Teachers and scientists have been trying hard for years to come up with a way to say the name of that planet that doesn't make schoolchildren (and childish grown men) giggle. The best they've come up with is an emphasis-free, rushed mumble of "eurahnuss." No matter how hard they try, though, no one is ever going to convince me that the name of the seventh planet isn't "Your Anus."

Hee hee...Your Anus. Hee hee.

"We've sent a probe to take photos of Uranus. We're hoping that the probe can give us a closer look at Uranus than we've ever had before. Perhaps this probe can even tell us if there's life on Uranus."


This, of course, leads us to the best 3rd grade joke ever:
Q. What does the Starship Enterprise have in common with toilet paper?
A. They both circle Uranus in search of Klingons.

BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! Oh, I'm dyin' over funny...

Oh, by the way..."'The outer ring of Saturn is blue and has Enceladus right smack at its brightest spot, and Uranus is strikingly similar, with its blue ring right on top of Mab's orbit,' said Imke de Pater, a professor of astronomy at the University of California Berkeley, who helped lead the study."
