    this makes me so friggin happy!

  2. DaMamaJama says:

    My boyfriend nearly peed his splashy pants after reading this post. I’m not quite sure which was funnier…

  3. franky says:

    I woke up in the middle of the night, and lol’d AGAIN! (my wife gave me a funny look.)

    Humorous, but I thought this whale thing was supposed to be serious.

  5. franky says:

    Would this be the first LOLwhale ever?

    How do I vote for Mohammed?

    Instead of Jacques, the choice of ‘Zissou’ would have been a tiny minute shred of a scrap of an ort of a hint of sense of humour, instead of majorly dumping the burdensome burden onto the obvious Mr. Splashy Pants.

    Is Burger an option?

  9. sallyrover says:

    There is only one reason that Mr. Splashy Pants is in the lead–the fact that “The Colbert Report” is in reruns because of the Writers Guild strike. Time for a fair settlement, and then the write-in campaign can begin for “Colbertio Hornblower!”

    I vote for Butterstick!!

  11. fenester says:

    I think naming a whale in the first place is a bit silly, so why not Mr. Splashy Pants? Pretentious, spiritual, “ethnic” names? (Like whales are Ainu or something) Please.

  12. Personman says:

    Hard to say how much of this is /b/’s fault, but there was a rather long-lived thread advocating voting for Mr. Splashy Pants yesterday.

  13. anthropomorphictoast says:

    How can you NOT choose that name?

  14. Bat Guano says:

    Of course saving wales is serious. But imagine how many people would be upset if Mr. Splashy Pants got harpooned. What if it were named Aurora or whatever, would as many care?

    I bet if the name “Ron Paul” had been in the list it would have led “Mister Splashy Pants” by a mile.

  16. chillypepper says:

    I burst out laughing, this is beautiful.

  17. Piove says:

    My wife is pregnant with our second child.
    We are having a little difficulty with names.
    Can the person who came up with Mr. Splashy Pants please contact us to help.

  18. Sam says:

    I lol’d irl.

  19. Cory Doctorow says:

    Franky, I just laughed and shouted LOLWHALE LOLWHALE! You made my night.

    You have to admit, my people are good.
