I think the naming committee for the new British Research vessel have been very clever…
Nope, not in naming the vessel something other than Boaty, but in the way they’ve dealt with it. Instead, the research Sub on board has been named Boaty McBoatface. Some people see this as a cop-out, but what it actually is (in my opinion) is a very clever way to stop the crew of the ship from referring to the ship as Boatface. Because lets face it, you KNOW that that would happen. Each crew member conveniently forgetting its real name and referring to it as boatface. Now of course, they can’t, because boatface is the submarine!
