Uranus has the most powerful known winds in the solar system.
That part made me giggle the most. I am 12.

Me too! I also liked:
"Uranus has two sets of rings, and the outer set is brightly colored"
AHAHAHA i totally missed that. Dammit, I'm not immature enough. Must work on that.:(
You should all be ashamed of yourselves. ASHAMED. :D
Without a bright companion such as Jupiter, Uranus can be fairly hard to spot.
Damn it, people already singled out the 4 quotes I zeroed in on immediately.
You should see the full proposal. It's priceless.
When I was in Catholic school, we had to do an open-topic research paper/presentation for English class, and the captain of the football team chose Uranus as his topic. I think I made it halfway through without cracking up. It was when he started a sentence with, "If you were to dig a hole in Uranus..." that I lost it.
Some jokes never get old. May Uranus forever be a planet that captures our desire for something that is "so big...I can't believe it's just so round...it's like, out there!"
Uranus looks like one of those rap guy's girlfriends!
"One of the big mysteries about Uranus is that it doesn't emit much heat at all."
*winces* They've scratched the surface of Uranus? Surely that would hurt. Have they looked at investing in some kind of topical cream?
Also... Voyager 2 "paid Uranus a visit"?? Is that code for "booty call"? o_0
Are you suggesting that Uranus would like us to use lube if we're going to penetrate further into its interior?
You're probably right.

As long as you don't get beer on Uranus, it's OK.
LOL! How did they get this one past the editor??
Probably because it's a genuine proposal!
I mean all the innuendoes!
Answer remains the same!
I don't think it's possible to write about Uranus without someone managing to perceive innuendo, so I suspect they just ran with it.
I managed but it took me a number of tries and using my stuffy announcer voice!
Oh, well done. I still haven't been able to make it all the way through without sniggering.
