Transport NSW to announce Ferry McFerryface as new Sydney ferry, by Maani Truu.
Over a year after the Name Your Ferry competition was launched, Transport NSW has announced the name of the final ferry in its new fleet: Ferry McFerryface. …
Ferry McFerryface was actually the second most popular choice, however, with the most votes going to Boaty McBoatface, the name of a British research vessel.
“Given Boaty was already taken by another vessel, we’ve gone with the next most popular name nominated by Sydneysiders,” said Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance, the ABC reported.
While the joke is a good one, it is wearing thin:
“It was funny when the Brits proposed Boaty McBoatface. It was still funny when the Swedes used Trainy McTrainface. Sadly the joke is wearing thin now though, and Ferry McFerryface just doesn’t roll off the tongue as easily,” one Facebook user wrote.
