NASA announced today that the Hubble telescope has recently sent them images of Uranus that have led them to making some shocking discoveries.

"We have discovered what appears to be a black hole on Uranus," comment John Spacey, Director of Misappropriation of Public Funds for Personal Gain. "At first we thought it may be a worm hole, but it definitely appears to be permanent. We plan to send in a probe in 2012."

NASA contends that they will lobby Congress to provide extra funding so they can move up the probing of Uranus as soon as possible in the coming year. "Let's face it, Uranus is not a pretty sight. We must move quickly if we want to penetrate the black hole and allow our probe to move in and out for awhile. While it appears clear now, there is always the potential for the black hole on Uranus to spew forth poisonous gas clouds or flowing magma."

The new images are being touted as a huge success by NASA. "These images are brilliant, prior to today we've not been able to get anything but crap from Uranus," commented Bob Jones, Image Analyst.

President Bush, an avid supporter of NASA commented in a press conference at the White House, "If it were up to me, I'd be so eager to get my little rocket in Uranus."
