A small tourist town in Missouri announced its new newspaper on Wednesday, with the proposed name The Uranus Examiner eliciting a range of reactions from giggles to groan

Small town Missouri newspaper ‘The Uranus Examiner’ shuts down after only two months, blaming ‘judgmental people’ for its demise. Well we guess their Uranus wasn’t very good looking.

Nice motto: “Our Top Priority Is Satisfaction In Uranus!” Sounds like MGAP is on their marketing team.

On the bright side, NASA can now launch a probe and call it…The Uranus Examiner”…..If they launch it from Edwards Air Force base it would probably go straight to Sacramento…

No need for us to criticize so let’s butt out. This is the business of Uranus.

It sounds like there were only two people running the whole thing. They probably got pooped.

When your newspaper is named the Uranus Examiner, ridicule is bound to rear its ugly head.

Sorry that was just stupid without being funny. Funny? So crude and blatant it works? Look at the signs in the picture. “Uranus Fudge Factory”.
