A B.C. news anchor couldn't help but take a stellar opportunity to make a joke about Uranus.

Rich Abney, who covers sports for CKPG News in Prince George, B.C., made the choice quip on live TV after anchor Aileen Machell read story about romaine lettuce that could potentially be grown on Mars.

"I've gotta say, it seems like a better idea than eating food grown on Uranus," he said. (Watch the video above.)

Fellow anchor Camille MacDonald gaped, as Abney couldn't help but grin a little.

The best part? Co-anchor Camille MacDonald's reaction.
