    There's still time to offer up your own side-splitting or even deadly earnest name for the ship, and beat boaty out of contention.

    You say that like it's a bad thing...

    Seriously though, I love the thoroughly demotic stupidity of it. The fact that it doesn't sound like something a professional comedian would come out with.

    I think we're still waiting for your suggestion, which will no doubt combine the charming irreverence of Spike Milligan, the surrealism of Flan O'Brien and the biting postmodern social satire of Chris Morris.

    Every time I go to the forum front page I see Prostitution - by Benny B, like it's some fancy new fragrance coming soon to a department store near you.

    A Plagiarism Scandal Is Unfolding In The Crossword World

    A group of eagle-eyed puzzlers, using digital tools, has uncovered a pattern of copying in the professional crossword-puzzle world that has led to accusations of plagiarism and false identity.

    Since 1999, Timothy Parker, editor of one of the nationís most widely syndicated crosswords, has edited more than 60 individual puzzles that copy elements from New York Times puzzles, often with pseudonyms for bylines, a new database has helped reveal. The puzzles in question repeated themes, answers, grids and clues from Times puzzles published years earlier. Hundreds more of the puzzles edited by Parker are nearly verbatim copies of previous puzzles that Parker also edited. Most of those have been republished under fake author names.
    is nothing sacred?

    The BBC asked people what their most boring job was...

    This response made me laugh out loud:

    Slicing 50lb (23kg) slabs of cheese into four parts, in a room with white walls, harsh fluorescent lights, no windows and no radio... At break one day, I asked someone what had happened to my predecessor and was told that he'd picked up a slab of cheese and thrown it at the wall and nobody had seen him since. He'd been there for three months, so obviously a man of Olympic determination - I lasted around nine days. Rob, North-west UK
