Somebody had to do it.

While talking about romaine lettuce that was grown on the International Space Station, CKPG Sports anchor Rich Abney cracked a joke that left his co-anchors in shock.

“A lot better than food grown on Uranus,” Abney quipped after anchor Eileen Machell announced the story.

The video clip of the Prince George anchor cracking the planetary joke has accumulated more than a million hits on YouTube.

Reporter Camille MacDonald’s jaw drops after Abney’s (rude?) stunt.
