Boaty McBoatface “Unsuitable name for a research vessel,” Says Science Minister Sir Frumpy Allen Wetblanket.
Of fuck you, you stupid goddamn science minister. If you put it up for a vote on the Internet, and you don’t get “HMS 420 Moot Fucked Your Mom” as the winner, consider yourself lucky, and honor the fucking vote.
If they don’t honour the vote as they promised, then how will those of us who genuinely care about arctic research know they’ll stick to that? What’s to stop them turning around and saying, ‘er, we decided Malta was a more appropriate place to do research’.
Fuck ‘em. Boaty McBoatface is a fine name for a ship.
