One’s never too old for a Uranus joke, as one newscaster proved in a recent broadcast.

CKPG anchor Aileen Machell reported that lettuce was grown in space on the International Space Station, and her co-anchor responded with, “Gotta say, it seems like a better idea than eating food grown on your Uranus.” 

His fellow anchors broke into hushed laughter before he made a feeble attempt to backpedal on his joke: “Or Jupiter. Or Mars. Or any of the other planets,” he added. Watch the full clip above.
