It's a planet! Who knew? Part 3
(Heard while traveling somewhere in the mommy-van with my family.)
In my daughter's 4th-grade science class this last school year, one of the students pronounced the name of the planet Uranus like I was taught to: "Yer-anus."
The teacher corrected him and said it's pronounced: "Urine-us."
After a beat, one of the girls piped up and asked: "How does THAT make it any better?"
