The Entire Internet Is Making The EXACT Same Joke About British Astronaut Tim Peake
Come on guys, surely we're better than this...
As you probably have been aware, if you've been anywhere the internet in the last 48 hours, British astronaut Tim Peake is currently on board a Soyuz rocket en route to a six-month posting on the International Space Station.
Predictably, since Peake is the first British citizen to fly on an agency space mission (there have been others, but they were private contractors and naturalised US citizens), the internet on this side of the pond has gone a bit mental about it all.
And even more predictably, everyone has made the EXACT SAME OBSERVATION ABOUT HIS NAME.

A little bit of variation here at least...

@LewisWiltshire that may be the best Tweet I've ever sent. A shame to waste it on an @ reply really...— David Wilding (@drwilding) December 15, 2015
Was it, though? Was it really?
No, Con, we have not.
But we've certainly reached peak 'Peak Tim Peake'.
