Apparently, I am 10 years old
Remember that Futurama episode where we first see the Professor's Smell-o-scope?
FRY: This is a great, as long as you don't make me smell Uranus. Heh heh.
LEELA: I don't get it.
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: I'm sorry, Fry, but astronomers renamed Uranus in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all.
FRY: Oh. What's it called now?
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: Urectum.
Anyway, Uranus is one of my nightmares as someone who works with children. I mean, witness the REAL conversation I had last year:
Little Boy: Do have a book called Exploring Uranus?
Me: Did your older brother put you up to this?!
Turns out, he had just read Exploring Jupiter and wanted the next book.
ANYWAY! Today, we got a book in called A Look at Uranus.
I keep giggling to myself. tee hee hee!
Yes, I am 10. Shut up.
