Heh, that welcome board is great. "Uranus Fudge Factory".

I saw that earlier and laughed slightly too hard. Alternatives included the like of Uranus Bugle etc

That article says Luge Hardman is the mayor of Uranus. She is the mayor of Waynesville; the mayor of Uranus is Louie Keen. If I can find this out in half a second on the internet, so can the Graun.

Hahahaha!

I'd have gone for the 'Uranus Observer'.

FleurDuMal - 14 Sep 2018 07:59:26 (#6 of 38)

That is in exact accord with my very puerile sense of humour!

Apparently the town of Uranus is twinned with the city of Colon in Panama, where the local newspaper is The Irrigator.

I sincerely hope that's true.

They also incorrectly identify Missouri as a"southern state", it is geographically in the midwest and was on neither and both sides during the civil war.

Hope they've checked that the town isn't really called "urelbow"

Hahaha!!!

I'm not sure that Louie Keen is that much less prone to double entendres than Luge Hardman.

<really hopes the Uranus Examiner's sister paper is based in Mianus>

Whither the Intercourse Examiner?

There is also the popular online Intercourse Observer.

Riga's Wives.
