Republic of Singapore Navy’s name crowdsourcing attempt works out just as expected
So our Navy posted a call on Facebook asking for suggestions on what their new ship should be called.
But of course, our netizens didn’t miss this chance to come up with some absolutely ridiculous yet hilarious suggestions.
1. Never break down
Never break down, never back down.
2. Fierce and scary
3. Our founding father
RSS Goh Chok Tong. RSS Sellapan Ramanathan (SR Nathan).
Yes, our million dollar sweetheart <3
6. Famous movies
Maybe Hulk would be more fitting for a green army vehicle.
This actually makes sense.
7. Mr. Pessimistic v Mr. Patriotic
8. Alphabet song
9. Historical reference
We like the creativity in this one.
In the hope that it never breaks down.
Because the kitchens onboard Navy ships are not halal-certified.
At least they’re not wasting money
The last time Singapore tried to rename something, we failed spectacularly. There was no change of the name Marina Bay, and yet we spent $400,000 on public consultations and discussions. This utter wastage of public funds was even carried in international newspaper Agence France Presse.
Also, remember our now-demolished Budget Terminal? This…creative name was thought up by 15-year-old Jonathan Sng, who spent a few minutes of his recess to come up with it. And his reward? $2000 and a mobile phone.
