I can imagine DiC/Cloverway kids making gay jokes, but we're all adults now, so why does Viz pronounce it wrong too?

Why do amercians say "a-lu-min-um", when most of the rest of the world says "al-u-min-ium"?

Same difference to "U-rain-us" and "Ur-in-us".

"Ur-in-us" is how it's pronounced in the Japanese original, so I don't see how Viz is mispronouncing it (same with the Pioneer/CWi dub)?

There's different ways to pronounce Uranus, and they (along with Optimum) picked the less dirty way. Although "urine-us" isn't that much better than "your anus."
