Wikipedia: "Typically, ukuleles have a figure-eight body shape . . . They are also often seen in non-standard shapes" Why pick a non-standard shape as representative?

He's limited by what images are available in the public domain, and besides, what's wrong with being a little challenging? I got it, you got it, and 93% of everybody else got it, so it clearly wasn't any more than a *little* challenging.

It does look more like a mandolin, but well it is the U quiz so didnt hesitate a second plus it has 4 strings (though you dont see that in a split second, if it wasnt a letter quiz I could understand someone mistakenly said mandolin first) (Or lute, but those generally have the neck in a 90 degree angle)

Honestly, with the white sphere on a black background? Surely there's an image out there that makes it look like a planet and not a cue ball.

The picture about Uranus look like a white plastic ball.

There are pictures about Uranus where its ring is visible, and it is often looks blue. From those pictures it would be much easier to find out it is a planet.

I love how, by fate, the modern world spells your as "Ur" so that the little joke will soon be standard English.

All the planets will be aligned with Uranus.

I indeed first thought a trophy or a relic or something important for something I didnt know about. It thought a while before my brain produced urn, it was allready on the paths of much more obscure things (that are extremely shiny, and markings of what looks like some sort of ancient god)

I thought it was the UEFA trophy or something. It is a very ornate urn.

What the devil? I love udon noodles; I always eat it when I go to Japan. I find it inexplicable how the sight of it can make one look sick. The thought of tapeworms never entered my head when looking at the image.

I knew there'd be one impossible U-word. (1st time I've ever heard "udon") Was hoping it'd be "unagi". Mmmmm!
