Will it be Mister Splashy Pants?
Apparently Greenpeace has a sense of humor too.
They opened up a whale-naming contest this month, and promptly had a hacker push “Mister Splashy Pants” into the lead. The removed the hacked votes, but by then, the competition had already gone viral – something we have been toying with at work lately – so we watch with great interest whenever it happens – and Mister Splashy Pants continues to dominate the competition.
Greenpeace extended voting until tomorrow, December 7th… but, what?… Can we settle for Humphrey now?
It’s not the presidential election yet, but go make your vote count:

this reminds me of the whole american idol thing where howard stern was getting everyone to vote for that horrible singer.

Mr. Splashy Pants just made me laugh hysterically. Then everyone in my office wanted to know what was funny, so now they’ve all voted, too.
Did my duty.
Sizzle – Vote for The Worst! ha ha!
But… Mister Splashy Pants is the BEST!
I love how Greenpeace already has t-shirts lined up with Mr. Splashy Pants on them! That might be a fun Xmas present!
Mister Splashy Pants it is. Com’on they could make millions with the cartoon spinoff. Wahtch out SpongeBob, Mister Spalshy Pants is taking over the world!
Mr Splashy Pants had me giggling for a long time after I voted for Suzuki. (I voted Suzuki because its also a type of motorcyle and I’m kind of into that kind of thing – wah wah wah)
I loved all the names!

Awww now what is wrong with Mr. Splashy Pants? I think a whale would just love that name. Imagine how it would just roll off his ginormous tongue.
These environmentalists take themselves way too seriously.
Best whale names: George and Gracie (a Star Trek IV reference).
Second best: Mister Splashy Pants.
I totally voted Mr. Splashypants. How could one not?
Mister Splashy Pants is great! It’s not offensive or pornographic. It’s downright cartoonish.
Mister Splashy Pants sure sounds a lot like this one kid at the playground who just can’t keep it in the diaper, y’know?
