You know they will just re-name the replacement Boaty McBoatface II, right?

In 40+ years, this chapter of the history books is gonna be a little surreal. Between the Nazis and all the Blank-y Mc-Blank-faces and eating laundry detergent. Kind of feels like a fever dream.

But it did result in a weird mashup of Punchy McNaziFace

"What did you do in the war, Daddy?"
"I commanded HMS Dready McDreadface. The finest Internet battle-meme to sail the seas."
"Did your ship fight any battles?"
"Only the constant struggle of my officers and crew to maintain their composure WHILE THE ENTIRE WORLD LAUGHED AT US!"

Voyage Under the Ice sounds like a bad Irwin Allen movie from the 60s.

I had not realized that it was not remotely operated by wire, which limits the possible distances, I did not know the technology for something like that existed except maybe for conditions similar to a swimming pool. This mean that sending an underwater probe on another planet is not as far fetched as it seems.

You know, if they'd just done the right thing and named the big boat Boaty McBoatface, this would have all blown over by now.

But no, they had to fark it up and cause a worldwide fuss.  They deserve what they get.

Has there ever been a Fark Photoshop Contest™ to create a crest/shield/logo for Boaty McBoatface? Because we totally need one.

Massive publicity for what would otherwise be fairly esoteric scientific pursuits in the ocean with neat new tech.

This was the best idea ever. The whole ridiculous vote and end result has been just massively fun and put a light on really interesting science work.

Do you know that if that thing was a nuclear bomb, it might be able to surface.

This drives me nuts everytime I hear this story.

If it carries people.

No one calls a torpedo a boat.
