As Jesse so delightfully discovered last night, Greenpeace's online vote to name a Humpback Whale has taken the path least suspected when a reddit post from yesterday asked it's community to vote for the name "Mister Splashy Pants", the wild card in a pool of names like Anahi, Libertad, and Manami. Greenpeace had asked it's supporters to help name a whale by picking a winner from the finalists a pool of over 11,000 submitted names.
"More than 11,000 possible whale names were submitted but we are now down to the last 30 possible whale names...which ones will be given to the wonderful humpback whales currently travelling on the Great Whale Trail?"Of course, reddit readers responded and it looks like some poor whale will now be called Mister Splashy Pants. If you'd like to take part, I suggest you vote soon, as voting ends November 30th at 7pm Amsterdam time (whenever that is...). Click HERE to vote, and not to sway you or anything, but here's how the top results are looking so far:
