Yes, but the Queen will probably launch it and when she does that is what she will say. Although by that time it will have been given a "proper" name.

The real joy of the British system is that nobody has any power until parliament says so.

The shows animators were Otmar Gutmann and Harold Muecke in 1983 and first aired in 1986. The show first started with several short episodes. Before, Pingu's original name would of been "Hugo" when the several short episodes were made into a short film. Then the show made a pilot movie for Swiss TV, and was later on created into the official show.

Would it be even funnier if I told you I haven't figured out yet why everyone seems to think it's a bad name? :)

I know, right? Why can't they let the little people have some fun. It's not like the name is going to affect the mission of the ship. People in charge stand too much on their dignity, in my opinion. Oh well. Maybe I will make this meme a wallpaper so I can look at it and laugh.

Thanks. It's probably just that the template fits the story. I imagine they had a similar reaction when the votes started flowing in. Memes imitating life...
