Here’s what we learned today: Boaty McBoatface will continue to live on – but not as a £200 million research ship.
Instead, our dear old Boaty will explore the polar seas as a yellow submarine while the research ship sails into the ocean as Sir David Attenborough.
Which raises this *important* question:
And this one:
The internet is *officially* mourning the death of democracy…
… while at the same time grieving over the death of our beloved Boaty McBoatface.
But desperate times call for desperate measures… so someone has launched a petition on Change.org, asking Sir David Attenborough to change his name to Boaty McBoatface.
All hail the power of the internet.
