A 16-foot cabin cruiser named the Titanic II went the way of her namesake Sunday, when she sprung a leak on her maiden voyage. Mark Wilkinson of the UK was rescued by the harbormaster as he clung to the rapidly sinking ship. Wilkinson had just purchased the used boat, named her Titanic II and went out fishing when a large hole opened up in the hull. Wilkinson says, “It’s all a bit embarrassing - I’m fed up with people asking me if I hit an iceberg.”
- Celine Dion is already in the studio recording her new song, “My Fishing Pole Will Go On”.
- NOTE TO SELF: Do not name the Zeppelin that I just bought “The Hindenburg II”.
