Give a yacht a bad name

If I had an ocean going yacht, I would *not* give it this name:

"At five minutes past eleven British time this morning, Falmouth Coastguard received a satellite phone call from the skipper of a 9.3 metre yacht called Spam, declaring a Mayday".

Before he almost bankrupted the country a few years ago, a younger playboy brother of the Sultan of Brunei had a yacht called "Tits". I think he was forced to sell it (but do not know to whom).

Not a lot of people know that.

But now a few more do.

Old 'error in French' joke:

Aggrieved hotel patron to French hotelier: "Je demande un nouveau matelot sur mon lit".

(Interlocutor meant matelas -mattress - *not* matelot)

And the response: "Ah les Anglais. Quelle nation maritime"......
