When I was in high school, I told my first period right-wing fat angry social studies teacher I wanted to be called "Chief" on the first day because I was tired and probably drunk and thought it was funny.

Being called "Chief" was funny for about one day, but he took me at my word and called me that every day for an entire year. Ugh.

Point is, sometimes a joke wears thin but you're still stuck with it.

"Ferry McFerryface joins the ranks of Trainy McTrainface, a Swedish express train, and Horsey McHorseface, a Sydney racehorse, wife of Matthew Broderick."

"Sydney Ferries has had an iconic history with Sydney Harbour and are named after iconic beaches and iconic Olympians. The workers are just frustrated with it."

Sounds like you have an iconic board up your iconic ass.

It's a farking ferry, it should have a number or a letter/color combo, and that's it. I have more respect for subway trains, and they don't get "christened" w/ a bottle of champagne.

You can really decide not to do your job because you don't like the name of the thing you have to work on?
Well then, I guess i'll put together the list of servers for customers that I'm not touching because they don't follow strict nomenclature standards.

The "public" is (are?) largely comprised of arrested adolescents who think the Kardashians are the pinnacle of class and breeding. Letting them decide on anything other than what brand of beer to buy is a big mistake.

I've been accused (many times) of beating a joke into the ground and I even I know that this was only barely funny the first time.

The humour in it was that "I can't believe they are actually going to use that name!"

This is not the public, this is the internet, which is much, much worse. Seems to me it would be much smarter to come up with 5 reasonable names and let the internet vote.

"Sydney Ferries has had an iconic history with Sydney Harbour and are named after iconic beaches and iconic Olympians. The workers are just frustrated with it."

Announcer 1: And here were go with the 440 relay. For the Australians, we have Donald Didgereedoo, Bruce Bruce, Cliven Outback and finishing up, Ferry McFerryface.

Announcer 2: Ferry McFerryface was named in the place he was conceived, I understand.

Announcer 1: Yes. A strong finisher. We will see if he has what it takes today. They're in position and, being the future, there's the starting phazer

(zving!)

Announcer 1: Donald is taking an early lead. Hope he can maintain it. Trumplandia's RNR 1205 is coming up fast. But he can't catch him. There's the handoff. Bruce Bruce, perfect grab. Has to jump the Sarlacc pit... and he does.

Announcer 2: We lost Canadian Bob McDougly. Doomed to be digested over a thousand years.

Announcer 1: You'd think he'd die of thirst in a few days or, you know hunger. Eventually.

Announcer 2: Nope. New pain for a thousand years. I guess you don't age either. Huh.

Announcer 1: There's the handoff to Cliven Outback. Still in the lead. Trumplandia still a close second.

Announcer 2: It'll come down to the final stretch. Both Ferry McFerryFace and Trumplandia's RNR 479 and strong finisher.

Announcer 1: Should we mention that it is 2 time the gravitation in the home stretch?

Announcer 2: I'm sure everyone is aware of that. These men have been training 2 thousand feet beneath the planet for this race. Complements of the Mole People.

Announcer 1: Outback hands off to Ferry. Another perfect handoff.

Announcer 2: Those two extra limbs really help, Praise Ganesh.

Announcer 1: It's going to come down to Ferry McFerryFace and Trumplandia's RNR 479. There's the space based laser! It misses ferry and vaporizes RNR! Trumplandia will not be happy!

Announcer 2: Ferry McFerryFace crosses the line and collects the Powerup. Another Powerup for Australia. Practically guarantees our place in the top tier of Nations that Matter.

Announcer 1: Will we use the Powerup to annex India? We'll have to wait and see.

Announcer 2: I dunno. We might just save 'em and trade 'em for air.

Announcer 1: Her come the killer cyborgs from Trumplandia. We were expecting this. Can't vaporize one of their runners and not expect retribution. We'll be back right after we raise our shields.
