Okay This Whale Might get Bullied, but he'll at Least Have a Bright Future

I was going to post some rules for proper sidewalk usage today when I came across this and had to show it to all four of you reading this blog.

Lesson learned: If you ask the internet to name a whale, get ready for geek sarcasm to win out every single time.

I'm not sure why I love this so much. It's either the actual name, that it's a bunch of geeks being way more charismatic than Greenpeace activists or for the fact that it proves my theory that people really into the green movement aren't ready to deal with reality. Seriously, you know there was a bunch of people sitting around trying to come up with some kind of airy fairy name for their whale like Iko or somekind of name that means something like "dream" in another language they don't actually speak.

Today, I love humanity because of this.

Yeah, the spurting out orange pieces, laughing in cubicles? Messy, and also, inappropriate! But that's just downright wonderful.

I was telling my wife about this and she said they're lucky it wasn't something like Exxon Valdez.

I was late - what was the top option? What might win?

Mr. Splashy Pants won with 74% of the votes. Humphrey (also pretty good for a whale in my opinion) was second with 4%, then Aiko and Miko, I think? And a few other silly names along those lines.
