Gwah!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who could hate such a lovely ship?

People who have flown against a squid in the hands of a veteran? I still have nightmares about what Zill did to me on Canyon Ambush.

Squids are scary in the right hands.

Junker - CPP Potkustart
Because if you know the reference you are awesome.

Squid - Calamari
Because, y'know, squid is part of a fried calamari dish? Plus my Squid has a lot of flamers.

Ready Aim - Spire
Because puns are fun

Pyramidion - La Bamba
Para bailar La Bamba
Para bailar La Bamba
Se necessita una poca de gracia
That song played when I was on a Pyramidion for the first time

Goldfish - Bahnapeykdas
From a fictional language called Intaki, translates into Goldfish. It just looked awesome to me.

Mobula - Mah Bola
Because I couldn't come up with anything else.

Galleon - Galleon
Because I didn't find anything nice to name this thing, so I will figure one later.

First recognized the language, then remembered the reference. Too bad I didn't come up with that name. :D

I named my Mobula "The Trail of Tears"

I did this partialy because of how unhappy my engineers are when the ship starts to break, and partially because the two lower deck mortars I originally put on the ship make it look like it is crying. I have traded out the mortars for Gatling guns to make the ship more of a brawler. I still don't like the Mobula very much as a competitive ship, but for messing around it is a lot of fun.

My ships names, though not used, were cat themed- still thinking of names for rest of ships since joining the ducks- but, The Cats Meow quickly became The Ducks Meow!

Mobula - "In Debt To The"

Why? Because in the pre-game lobby it reads "In Debt To The Mobula".
Why? Because when you run into us you'll soon be sleeping with the goldfishes, see?  *taps out cigar*  xD


Oh and we also have a Goldfish called Wanda... ^^

I don't think I've told all my ship names since I've gone Cake.

Goldfish: "USS Pastryprise"
- Goldfish is really the ship I got my piloting roots on. I think it's also real fun to fly. Therefore, as not only James T. Kirk, but leader of the Cakes, I named my Goldfish the USS Pastryprise.

Spire: "Wedding Cake"
- It's tall, and people laugh when it inevitably falls over. But when done correctly, it can stun a whole room of people.

Squid: "Cupcake"
- It's small and can be consumed quickly.
Cupcake.

Galleon: "Cheesecake"
- Sniping isn't really the Cake thing to do, but you can still run a brawler Galleon. Therefore: Cheesecake. Kind of a Cake, but it depends mostly how you run it. 

Mobula: "Flatcake"
- It's flat.

Pyrmidion: "Piece of Cake"
- I couldn't think of any triangular Cakes, therefore, it's just a piece.
I'm considering throwing all flares on it and calling it "Peace of Cake," but double incendiary mortar is just too much fun.

Junker: "In the Trunker"
- I'm just too damn proud of this name to change it.

almost all my ship names come from Homestarrunner.com

The Burninator pyra: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail58.html
The Dangeresque junker: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail80.html
The Cheat squid: http://www.homestarrunner.com/cheatvideo.html
The Proud Anselmo goldfish: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail138.html
Strongbad spire: http://www.homestarrunner.com/vcr_sb.html
Bear Holding A Shark mobula: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail145.html

and then theres my galleon, Mandalore's Fist, which is named after a capital ship a character i played in a PnPRPG owned, or i should say, commanded all Mandalorians from.
