In the name of Stephen Colbert, Wikiality.com, and Colbericans everywhere, I hearby claim the recently discovered Earth-like extrasolar planet in the name of Stephen Colbert! --Careax 17:04, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
Until now this planet has been known as "Gliese 581 C". First of all, whoever this Gliese guy is, he sounds like a foreigner - and worse still like a Frenchie! And who is going to remember that name?! It's like something the factonistas at Wikip*dia would have come up with!
Second, this brave new world is only 20 light years away. In astronomy terms that's spit-wad distance! It is in America's interest to seize this planet before the French, North Koreans, or Iranians do. The last thing we want is a bunch of beret-wearing aliens begging us for help from a maraudering amoeba!
For these reasons, and because any good gut would conclude this, Gliese 581 C is now to be known as Colbearth, and will be ruled in absentia by Stephen Colbert (on behalf of The Greatest President Ever and America).
