A Yacht Named Bob?

We’ve all heard of a boy called sue but the man we love to hate, Tony Hayward, has a yacht named Bob.Hmm, I wonder if it’s a nickname for Robert or even Robin? Tony is sort of a reverse Robin Hood, after all…

Bob and Tony have been reunited this weekend for a race at the Isle of Wight. Glad Tony finally got his life back…

    Tony Hayward is a perfect example of how the wealthy and powerful are so very different from the rest of us.

  2. Bob has an aquatic reference, but it seems more appropriate for a dinghy or a fishing vessel, not a yacht you are using to RACE around the North Sea in.

    so nice the moneyed classes can escape.

    BOB is an acronym for Bend Over Bozos

    “Bob” was also British slang for a shilling (when the pound was worth $2.80, a shilling would have been fourteen cents), so, perhaps, this is a reference to money.
    Or maybe how much Hayward tips the waitresses…

    Amazing. He isn’t the captain … okay, maybe you’d want someone whose only job is sailing as shot-caller. But he doesn’t even sail, he has a yacht so that he canwatch it?
    Jesus in spats, different isn’t the word.

    FINALLY, an explanation of ‘bob’ and schilling. 14¢?

  8. joel hanes says:

    “bob” is what sailboats do in the absence of wind

    Surely he had to realize that being caught on his sailboat would be a public relations nightmare????????

    who said he was smart.
