Titanic 2: THE REVENGE

titanic 2

Billionaire Clive Palmer is struggling with ideas for how to spend his fortune (hint: I will happily accept gifts of both cash and extravagant homes) and is thus building Titanic II, where you can experience cruising in a ship exactly like the original, down to the menu served and costumes worn, but hopefully without that whole sinking and dying thing, or rats, or lice, or Celine Dion.

On one hand, I think this is kind of disrespectful. On the other hand, it sounds like exactly the sort of trainwreckshipwreck that would be straight up my alley, so sign me up! On my third hand…I’m only going if I can go first class, none of that belowdecks sleeping in a pile of humanity business for me. Plus, if it does sink, given that it’s a replica, I want first crack at the lifeboats.

    Considering what just happened on that cruise ship, where the engines died and they were pooping in buckets and no had no AC or real food, I don’t think I would ever trust a ship that is modeled after one laying at the bottom of the sea.

    Unless it was open bar all the time. Then I could just be drunk through the diarrhea and drowning.

      Yeah, I feel like there have been a lot of negative cruise reports in the news lately, and I would be a bit hesitant to take a cruise myself given that by its nature you’re out in the middle of nowhere and utterly dependent.
