Rising to the occasion with typically British humour

You might have smiled, as I did, when the leading suggested name for a £200million Antarctic research vessel is ‘Boaty McBoatyface’.

Congratulations due to James Hand for the amusing suggestion, and more importantly to the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) who allowed the name through to the list of suggested names.

James says he now has regrets about submitting the name. Silly, yes. But also typically irreverent British humour. [Click on images to expand].
