Uranus is the butt of a lot of jokes.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson posted a snippet of him and “Celebrity Family Feud” host Steve Harvey arguing over the ill-named planet Sunday. The tweet came ahead of the airing of the Tyson family’s appearance on the show. Apparently, the scientist couldn’t help but take a dig at the host’s pronunciation of a certain planet.
@IAmSteveHarvey blew a gasket after I told him pronouncing Uranus as “Your-Anus” was okay for 8-yr-olds, but not adults,” Tyson tweeted.
Um, was there another way to say Uranus?
This might explain a joke Harvey, 60, made to Tyson, 58, in a clip released on July 7 in anticipation of the episode. He made the crack after a great round of Fast Money.
“You don’t get this Neil, your Uranus is gonna be a lot of trouble,” Harvey said.
If we’re being honest, both these men sound like they’re 8-year-old boys. But it definitely gave the internet a few solid chuckles.
Although, with all his wisdom and knowledge, Tyson has yet to answer the biggest question of all: who is crazy enough to play him in a trivia game?
Watch the Tyson family annihilate former basketball icon Rick Fox and his family in Fast Money.
