“Keep Earth clean. It’s not Uranus”

"Keep the Earth/planet clean. It’s not Uranus”—usually made to sound like “your anus” --is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“Keep the Earth clean - it’s not Uranus” was printed in the Charleston (WV) Gazette on April 28, 1999. “Keep this planet clean. It’s not Uranus!” was posted on the newsgroup alt.fan.howard-stern on August 20, 1999.

“Keep Earth clean. It’s not Uranus” was posted on the newsgroup alt.tv.x-files.creative on September 7, 1999. “My dad is def wearing his KEEP OUR PLANET CLEAN. IT’S NOT URANUS shirt to livefreeliveloud” was posted on Twitter by Mandy Merritt on June 28, 2008. “Keep the planet clean, it’s not uranus” was posted on Twitter by ahaina on August 12, 2008.


28 April 1999, Charleston (WV) Gazette, “Which came first, the ovum or the ...?” by Terry Marchal, pg. 1C:
A reader reported a bumper sticker spotted recently in downtown Charleston:

“Keep the Earth clean - it’s not Uranus.”

It’s a yiddish word meaning matchmaker, but Stern uses it in the context of someone who thinks they know it all and yacks incessantly.

Greetings!
I hope Howard remembers all the reaction to his media blitz when listeners complained of his incessant boasting about his videos, books, and movies, so much so, that folks were pretty disappointed that the reality couldn’t live up to the generated expectations.

25 March 2003, Chatham (ON) Daily News, “Butts from another planet,” pg. 4:
But a recent incident was just too much. As I was driving down Wellington Street at noon-hour, the lady in the car in front of me tossed a cigarette butt out her window. Here’s the kicker: the car she was driving had a bumper sticker that said “Keep the Earth Clean . . . it’s not Uranus.” Quite right, lady. Maybe you should read your own bumper sticker! You sure looked like “Uranus” from where I was sitting.
