I love this. Greenpeace has been running a Whale Naming poll. In their words,
More than 11,000 possible whale names were submitted but we are now down to the last 30 possible whale names...which ones will be given to the wonderful humpback whales currently travelling on the Great Whale Trail?
Here's a list of some of the wonderful names, along with a brief description of their rich heritage and lofty meaning.
Of course, they had to sneak one fun one in there, "Mister Splashy Pants". Excellent!
I don't know about you, but I would find it hard to vote against "Mister Splashy Pants", in any poll. Apparently, a lot of people agree. Here are the results thus far. To me they pretty much sum up the internet.
