Go Green...I think

Greenpeace is strange. To protest global warming they had 1000 people strip naked on a glacier. What statement does that make? They were still cold so there was no statement about global warming. Also, the glacier was strong enough to hold 1000 naked people on it so it does not make much of a statement for melting glaciers.
Now they do this:
Out of 11,000 submissions in our competition to name the humpback whales we were tracking on their migration to the Southern Ocean, we narrowed it down to the final 30. Over 150,000 people then voted for their favorite name.
Mister Splashy Pants is the winner by a nautical mile! (greenpeace.org)

Seriously? Mr. Splashy Pants? They let the hippies vote and the best they can come up with is Mr. Splashy Pants? Over 150,000 people voted and the best they could come up with was Mr. Fucking Splashy Pants? I'm all for animal rights and all but the nimrods that named this beautiful mammal should be clubbed like baby seals. I'm sorry Mr. Splashy Pants, may I call you by something else? You can pick the name.
