    URANUS JOKES……VERY LAME, BUT MOST KIDS LOVE THEM. Just for fun…….not graded.  Thanks to scientist, Ben Dover for his discovery, we can all look up at URANUS now.URANUS is four times the size of Earth, larger than originally believed.Scientists had originally thought URANUS was 1.7 billion miles from Earth. This is wrong. It's closer that you think!There are no incidents of moons associated with URANUS. PHEW!!! That was a close one.I didn't think URANUS was the one with a big red spot.Do you know what happens when you ride a bicycle on a different planet? I was hoping you'd know because I saw some skid marks around URANUS.When earth's rotation causes us to face URANUS, I can only hope I'm upwind.What are those rings around URANUS?News Flash: The massive black hole located dead center of URANUS seems to be pulling the two moons right in.Don't look now, but there are rings around URANUS.The top religious and scientific figures are debating whether URANUS is holy or not.URANUS makes earth seem small.URANUS and it's moons are always visible to the naked eye.This morning, NASA released a news statement saying there will never be a mission to URANUS. It is far to dangerous, due in part, to the crushing gravity of the black hole located in the heart of it and it's crappy terrain.Due to the poisonous gases that exist, Man can not survive anywhere near URANUS.New scientific studies reveal that there are not five moons on URANUS, but only two, very large moons.Although URANUS is very far from earth, due to its large size there is no surprise it took man so little time to find it.When I go to see URANUS, will it be bright? Remind me to bring my blinders anyway.
