Uranus stinks. And we're not joking.

The enigmatic outer solar system planet has long had a credibility problem, what with it being the butt of countless immature jokes. Now, astronomers have just discovered a gas in Uranus' clouds that does nothing to curtail the giggles. At all.
...
Using the Near-Infrared Integral Field Spectrometer (NIFS) that is attached to the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii, astronomers were able to detect the very slight spectroscopic signature of hydrogen sulfide in the uppermost layers of Uranus' clouds. This whiff of hydrogen sulfide is only the tip of the odoriferous iceberg, however; the presence of this gas is indicative of a huge reservoir below the obscuring cloud deck.

It cost us 65 million dollars for NASA to tell us the planet Pluto smelled like a wet dog too!

Nope...I am not touching Mercury to see if how it smells, lines up with its name though! (Not that I have done a lot of Mercury-sniffing to find out).

Does Saturn have that new car smell?? (I don't know, I am a permie and buy junk and pay cash for my used cars).
 
I can't renounce my name. It's on all my stationery! And hinted in this tiny ad:
