We should all drop our drawers and salute Uranus.

Hey, that was one time. Years ago. At band camp.

In 1780, Herschel was appointed director of the Bath orchestra..

3< ...he subsequently discovered uranus in a bath movement

Also the inventor of the Herschel's Kiss, a noted commercial failure.

And he dedicated his discovery to whom... ?

Why is this not a national holiday, you ask? Well, in fact, it IS a national holiday... on URANUS!!!

Dave's right, that NEVER gets old!

Well, I've got a date next week with a guy who has seen mine more than once.
Get your prostate checked regularly, guys.

"Recently, some evidence has been cited by Dr. Stuart Eves that Herschel might have discovered rings around Uranus.[13]"

But I wasn't born yet....

After that he discovered asteroids.
