H/T to one of the Lexicans who posted this to the F/B page.
“It is a cautionary tale of well meaning, engagement-seeking bureaucracy and a cheeky public and it could see a very expensive new research ship given the most ridiculous name ever.”
As a few told me, “Can you imagine being a crew member calling the harbormaster with your ship’s name?”
Personally, I favor the RRS It’s bloody cold here.
Reminds me of this post of Lex’s on callsigns.
