I forgot to turn on the bathroom fan.

I always said Uranus was frigid

"Whatever hit Uranus is thought to have been between two or three Earth-masses."
And just where were the kardashians?

Some planets have to pay extra for the smacking.

Some of the mass from the planet would have been incorporated into Uranus, some went into the moons, and the rest possibly escaped the system entirely.

I told ya that ice cream would go to your---wait, don't slap me. (Pizza also does that!)

the perfect punchline at the end:

plenty of other oddities are likely locked deep within Uranus.

"It's unlikely Uranus was tilted when it formed, and astronomers have struggled to understand the cause."

Astronomers don't know much about the reality of life's struggles.

God bless Sam Cooke

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book,
Don't know much about the French I took
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be.

It was my dad, because he was always threating to smack MINE sideways whenever I acted up.

Ya know, there were other gods they could have named that planet for. (...other gods for whom we could have namned that planet.)

Was it my white mama doing the smacking?

$5 says NurseCindy can *smack* Uranus too!

I had the same thought as PirateBoy, and the news video below the article is about North Carolina--Q.E.D.!

NurseCindy smacked Uranus sideways (and probably up one side and down the other, to use the vernacular...)

*blows a kiss and runs for his life*

Sorry about the dead link.

It was supposed to be a link to a six-minute clip of My White Mama which aired on Mad TV starring Artie Lane. Don't know if it was a Typepad thing or if Dave or Judi neutered it for legal reasons. But if you want to see that clip you'll have to do your own search on "My white mama mad tv" and you will find it.

He's not around, so I'll say it: Some people might call that foreplay.

I ate a plate of roasted Brussels sprouts yesterday. I was good going down...
