Despite being a lifetime Ozzie, as a British born emigrant I never lose sight of what it is to be a Pom, which as all fellow Poms will know revolves around true Pommy eccentricity!
This has been characterised by a national competition held in the UK to name their latest Polar Exploration Vessel, a scientific arctic ship currently without a name.
Various names were suggested and voted on including RRS David Attenborough and a number of other historical figures of renown. None of these came within a bull's roar of the eventual winner which, in true British style was "RSS Boaty Boatface".
In fourth place was RSS It's Bloody Cold Here" with another choice being "RSS What Iceberg?"
The organisers of the on-line poll might have heeded a previous poll run by Green Peace to name a pod of whales. The winner there was "Mr Splashy Pants".
Ahhhhh ... what it is to be a Pom .....
