Irony Overdose of the Day

This is just too much:

An expedition team which set sail from Plymouth on a 5,000-mile carbon emission-free trip to Greenland have been rescued by an oil tanker.

Raoul Surcouf, Richard Spink and skipper Ben Stoddart sent a mayday because they feared for their safety amid winds of 68mph.

All three are reportedly exhausted but safe on board the Overseas Yellowstone.

Time once again to introduce our mascot for these kinds of things, Buck Murdock:


“Irony can be so ironic sometimes…”
