Scientific Researcher Boaty McBoatface, At Your Service [Follow Up]

Even though the heavily polled name Boaty McBoatface and its 124,109 voters didn’t win namesake of a new Arctic/Antarctic ice breaking research vessel this past week, the meme was still honored in a cute way. The Natural Environment Research Council chose the name "David Attenborough," after the voice we've all become accustomed to narrating animal savagery for the big ship -- and honored McBoatface voters by giving the name to the ship’s remote research submarine.

It's been one hell of a year. In less than six months we’ve lost Lemmy, David Bowie, and Prince but have gained the ability to legitimately use, “David Attenborough and his intrepid sidekick, Boaty McBoatface,” in a sentence.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, guys, but boats don't shit or piss; therefore, it won't be using any bathroom.

David Attenborough can use any damn bathroom he pleases. Pretty sure her Madge would let him use her damn throne if needs be- the man is a living God.

Ships are female so you have to say, "David Attenborough and HER intrepid sidekick"
