Mister Splashy Pants is in danger!December 5, 2007
Humourless donks try to stop that whale being named ‘Mister Splashy Pants’.
“The poll is a way to raise recognition of the plight of the humpback
whale which Greenpeace is tracking via satellite, as they migrate from
breeding and calving areas in the tropical South Pacific to the feeding
grounds of the Southern Ocean…The poll is down to 30 names now, and unlike Mr. Splashy Pants, some of
them very beautiful. Among them are Anahi, which means immortal in
Persian, Kaimana (divine power of the ocean in Polynesian), and Shanti
(peace), Suzuki (after David), Aurora (dawn) and Humphrey (?).”
Anahi? Kaimana? THAT WHALE MUST BE NAMED MISTER SPLASHY PANTS IF ONLY TO BLOCK NAMES LIKE THESE.
