Gritter Thunberg name for new salt spreader

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Snowel Gallagher and Gritter Thunberg are among the pun-filled names chosen for a new fleet of eight salt spreaders in Manchester.

The city council asked for suggestions on Twitter and received more than 2,000.

The catchiest 24 were then put to the public to have the final say in a series of polls - with nods for both Swedish teenage activist Greta Thunberg and Oasis star Noel Gallagher, who is from the city.

The other winning names include Basil Salty, Grit Astley, Spreaddie Flintoff, Spreaddie Mercury, Snowbi-Gone Kenobi and Slushay Away.

The ironic joke is of course that if Greta gets her way they won't be needed because there'll be no more snow and ice.

Uhhhhh, the British Islands and Northern/Atlantic Europe are actually gonna get colder, since the Gulf Stream wills stop.

Eventually the Atlantic will freeze in winter and Greta will be able to walk over the ice (or maybe drive a sled) from Scandinavia to glare at you, is that what you want?

Basically then if it gets warmer and sea levels rise, Climate Change.  If it gets colder ,  also Climate Change.  Win-win!

Yes, our winters are getting colder, and AU's summer has been mild, or greatly delayed, but apparently heat causes that!

Greta Thumpberg, would be a better name since most of Germany and Sweden dreams of that!

:lol:

Yes, a cold day outside, is weather, and a hot day outside is Climate. And the jet stream is blamed for the mini ice age, we didn't have, and the jet stream again is blamed for the worlds temps to supposedly go up.

 

I guess that also means that the hottest day on av, in AU, is also weather, but it is actually climate related.

 

But who am l to knock the CCC,ers.

:P
