American Splendor – That Broke-Down Cruise Ship is Now Getting Patched Up in SF – What Should Her New Name Be?

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

I don’t know, don’t you ever wish you could have a new name? Like Penelope or Scout or ANYTHING, ANYTHING BUT CARNIVAL SPLENDOR?

I mean if the Condoleezza Rice can change her name, then anything’s possible, right?

Anyway, here she is, preparing to be sitting on the dry dock of the Bay at Pier 80.

Via Daver6:

And hey, just what she needs – a new engine all the way from Trieste Italy. Thanks Wärtsilä!

Oh, better check the packing list to make sure it’s all there.

Bon Courage, Pier 80 workers!

Bon Voyage, Carnival _______!

Oh well.
