Here is the DM article, some better names in there. :lol:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... fires.html

Quote:
Among the scathing suggestions were 'the Spirit of Swindle', 'SS Gold Digger', 'the Queen of Green', and 'the Spirit of The WalletSucker'.

Other gems included 'Queen of Capitalism', 'The Coastal Corruption', and 'Spirit of Delusions'.

One user suggested the name 'HMS Cantafford', while a second went with 'Queen of Infinite Fare Increases' and a third took a blunter approach with 'The Floating C**psickle'.

The company might be slightly less than impressed with entries like 'Queen of the Damned', 'Coastal Fair Hike', and 'MV Corporate Pork'.

Meanwhile pay to executives has annoyed many, with some competition entries including 'Queen of Over paid CEOs' and 'CEO Cash Cow'.

Other online critics took take aim British Colombia's premier, Christy Clark, who is the second-least popular leader ever, and has been seen as not taking a tough enough stance with the company.

The somewhat unfavorable suggestions included 'The Christy Clark Ark', 'Clark's Pocket Liner' and 'The filthy oar AKA Christy Clarke'.





And then, this little gem:

Quote:
However, they also accepted that some responses have been less than favorable, telling CBC News that 'people are having fun on social [media] and we get it'.


You get it?

You really get it that you are a bunch of pompous overpaid arseholes running a shit service ? :evil:

Well, good for you.

Yeah. That one confused me too which isn't easy because when it comes to profanity, obscenities, and filthy insults I'm kind of like the Boss. I'll put it down as a typo and someone who was drunk/high when they sent it in actually meant to say 'SS C*mDumpster. :twisted: :mrgreen:

PS: Welcome back for the evening, ya Commie bastard. [B-o]

The "Queen of East Hastings", you mean?

Ever heard of her cousin?
