Uranus Examiner Closes Pod Bay Doors

A town called Uranus, Missouri launched a newspaper back in September called "The Uranus Examiner" but after five issues, it's gone out of business. Hmm...wonder why.

First, Uranus is a tiny area on Route 66 in Missouri that, minus a local proctologist, is home to the world's largest belt buckle and other quirky attractions. That should lay the foundation for the rest of this short story.

Really no matter what the paper goes by, using the town's name in its own only serves to screw itself. 

Uranus citizens chuckled, local businesses wouldn't advertise and banks wouldn't loan it money. Some people supported the paper but the vast majority of others didn't, in part, because one of the publishers once owned a strip club.

The shutdown leaves local bird owners without a source of cage lining.
