The British National Research Council asked the public online for names for its new research boat that will travel to Antarctica. The current leader: “Boaty McBoatface.”
The National Research Council has said that they will choose the final name, regardless of what wins the online vote.
We like the name, and here are 3 reasons we thing they should choose it.
- We would pay good money, and by good money, we mean pocket change, to see a boat named “Boaty McBoatface.” Do you expect to get to Antarctica for free, National Research Council? We didn’t think so. In a world where people donate to kickstart someone making potato salad, we’re sure such people would pay money to a boat with a dumb name, too!
- We’d pay even more money for a selfie with Boaty McBoatface! Do you see the trend here, British Research Whatever Council? You can sell tickets to your boat. Souvenirs. Merchandise. An entire cruise line with a name better than “Royal Norwalkian.”
- With the money based on our suggestions, you can build an entire fleet of boats with stupid names and get to Antarctica for free. That would be a much better free trip then spending 30 nights at Hiltons around the world and still not having enough HHonors points to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in landlocked Idaho.
