Not a sham at all. A well talked about ship! I'm sure it was mentioned in a ship names thread on here a few months ago too.... (*))

For a while, a few years ago, I was installing satellite TV in peoples' houses.They often asked if it was subject to interference so I used to tell them: "It could be affected by heavy rain and, because it comes in from 'space', you could get some speckle from Uranus." Only two people got that, the other 200 nodded their heads sagely. So maybe 'Titan' plods around and only folk with dirty minds (like us) see the joke.

Maybe it's a language thing, like only people in Mexico and whatnot think "Pajero" drivers are funny.
