Save Mr. Splashy Pants!

Greenpeace is holding a competition to name a whale on their Great Whale Trail. According to their website:

This project will produce important information on the movements and migratory destinations of humpback whales from small, unrecovered populations off Rarotonga (Cook Islands) and New Caledonia. Greenpeace is communicating this critical non-lethal scientific research to the wider public as part of their campaign against Japan's unnecessary lethal "research" in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
For some reason, Mr. Splashy Pants is the runaway favorite. You have until tomorrow to vote for a name, so go do it.

Also, I can't help but think that if Colbert was on the 'ert' (pronounced 'air,' naturally), he'd have picked a name that likely would have won...
