All the other names would make the other whales beat him up.
2007-11-30 03:11:24 PM  
Oh noes! Humphrey is up to 4%! Must vote more for Mister Splashy Pants!!
2007-11-30 03:11:24 PM  
I admit I voted for Mr. Splashy Pants. When that becomes his name, that whale is going to come ashore and kick all of our asses you know.
2007-11-30 03:11:38 PM  
All hail Lord Splashy Pants!

Suck it, take-yourselves-seriously hippies.
WTG, laugh-at-yourselves hippies and haters.

//like the laugh-at-yourselves hippies, tho
2007-11-30 03:13:09 PM  
71%. I would say behold the power of Fark, but I believe it's more to the fact that the rest of the world is just as demented as us.

Go team?
2007-11-30 03:13:51 PM  
Weeeee!!!! No cookies... no registration... I can vote more times than a dead man in Chicago.

2007-11-30 03:16:31 PM  
Did anyone else read Libertad as Libertard?

2007-11-30 03:18:22 PM  
That's odd, I clicked Mr. Splashy Pants but my vote registered as Mr. Splashy Vladimir Putin.
2007-11-30 03:18:26 PM  
As far as the other options go, Shanti? Really want to name a whale after the virus thats going to kill us all? and seriously Sedna sounds like an STD.

I think Atticus could be a cool name for a whale...

/save the cheerleader.
//have voted mr splashypants 3 times.
2007-11-30 03:18:36 PM

well hello Mr Splashy Pants... (this is my Boomstick!)
2007-11-30 03:20:11 PM  
Oddly enough Mr. Splashy Pants was my nickname in high school.
2007-11-30 03:21:02 PM  
I like Echo. Still had to vote MSP.
2007-11-30 03:21:57 PM  
Must name him MUHAMMAD or Muhammed. Mohamed is the and Mohammed are spellings muslims use to not directly name their children after him but still honor him. What better way to bring attention to this whale?
2007-11-30 03:22:10 PM  
Go Mr. Sticky Pants!
2007-11-30 03:22:10 PM  
cyber_slacker: Oddly enough Mr. Splashy Pants was my nickname in high school.
