A town in America has announced the launch of its new newspaper – which has quickly become the butt of people’s jokes. A town in Missouri, has called their new publication the Uranus Examiner. The name might be unique, but it flushed out any critics who may be critical of its new moniker.
The mayor of the nearby town of Waynesville, Luge Hardman, has reportedly slated the new title, saying: ‘No. I’m sorry. But the innuendo of that title puts my city up for public ridicule, and I will not be a part of it.’ The paper’s managing editor Natalie Sanders reportedly thought the name had a certain ring to it, and publishers added that there had been a hole left before Uranus decided to fill it.
Ms Sanders told KY3: ‘People who wanted an actual newspaper were not going to get one anymore, so we decided to turn a fun newspaper into a real one.’ It will replaces the old paper, the Waynesville Daily Guide, ensuring that residents will keep up to date with all the news in Uranus. The first edition of the Uranus Examiner is due to be published in early October so people will be kept straining to read it for a few more weeks.
Uranus is located on the famous Route 66 highway, and if their website is anything to go by, they are fully embracing the implications of their town’s name. It proclaims ‘There’s a lot to do in and around Uranus,’ and say ‘it’s easy to find something fun for everyone to do around Uranus.’ The town is also very proud of its fudge factory, which has the slogan: ‘The best fudge comes out of Uranus!’
