Hi There. I'm In Third Grade!

Pardon me while I have an extremely juvenile moment (well, most of my moments are juvenile, so you needn't point this out.)

Space.com has an article entitled New Images Reveal Clouds on Planet Uranus. Of course, no other planet needs the word "planet" to introduce it. This was merely an attempt to fend off the rather juvenile, but tiresome jokes about the planet's name. In fact, these jokes are sold stale that even I am tired of them. Imagine that.

The jokes are still there, though, because of their most unfortunate choice of tailing paragraph:

"There is very little temperature contrast and very little energy to drive the weather in Uranus," says Sromovsky. "Whatever is happening has to be well lubricated; it has to be a low-friction environment."

Um, right.
