It sounds like they at least remembered to shut the screen doors.

Pulled it up on google maps. A straight line from the mouth of the river near Perth, Scotland to the river near Antwerp is entirely over water... unless you veer about 2 miles off course to the south, in which case you'll hit some islands like this idiot did.

Ship's owner was last seen heading for England with a large bottle of polish remover.

Nothing like the UK's nonsensical racism/prejudice against everyone for the most inane of reasons.

So they sailed down the coast and ran aground when they came too close to land.
Never miss a chance to be smug and nationalist, Brits.

The captain was trying to be the King Sh*t of F*ck Island and failed miserably.

I think this news item is totally racist!! It didn't have to mention that the captain was Polish. This is a slur on ALL Polish people making all British folk think they are stupid. They have more intelligence in their little fingers than some Brits I could mention!!!! And believe me...... there are some really stupid Brits out there!!!


I'm half Polish and I thought the story was pretty funny. Hey, "Fabia"...take your "I'm offended because..." attitude and shove it.

Hactually this is from the Mirror isn't it, which is even stupider than the Fail, and catering to a socioeconomic cohort that thinks mouthbreathers are stuck up. And probably French.

He was probably using a different projection.

since his destination was entirely fictional, I am not surprised he did not make it
