I guessed where and I was right.
I worked in a lab, and all the computers were named after planets. The boss immediately put the kibosh on naming any of them Uranus to head off the puns. Downloading to Uranus, streaming to Uranus, backing up Uranus, Uranus caught a virus… Such a missed opportunity.
And when you think about it in a purely logical way, if your boss doesn’t allow “Uranus” jokes, he is diminishing the productivity oif the lab, by making it a less funny and jovial enviroment.
I other words, it his job to give everyone the lab access to Uranus.
have you tried turning Uranus off and back on again? Is Uranus plugged in?
Man, your boss was no fun.
Booting and rebooting Uranus would have been the most fun! (Of course, running scans on and cleaning Uranus would have been a rather messy job…)
Professor: I’m sorry Fry, they changed it’s name to stop people from making that stupid joke.
Fry: Oh. So what’s it called now?
No matter how many times I watch Futurama, I laugh like an idiot at that scene.
This is the kind of thing that makes me sad about living in a culture that speaks French.
Didn’t prevent Rambo from being translated… *that way* 😀
Not the same but with German as first language I stumble from time to time how exotic Europa is presented in Scifi.
These jokes never get old.
‘Course, the proper historical pronunciation is more like “OOR-a-nos” which is how I always pronounce it.
Was the guess ‘Online’?
XD nice one.
Saw this and it reminded me of this comic.
I’m still laughing at this
