Submarine in a Canal

Cyril Howarth spent £50,000 converting a canal boat into something that looks like a U-boat. He's placed it out on the narrow canal between Leeds and Liverpool (UK), much to the displeasure of local boaters:

But the vessel has so alarmed fellow canal users that British waterways has been called on to investigate whether it breaches any rules.

"You should have seen the faces of the locals when they woke up with a U-boat in their midst," said Mr Howarth, 78.

Leetspeak? Don't be a twat. People have been users to spell things out for decades.

Oh and MORON? Why is he a moron? I'm sure you've got lots of things that many would consider a waste of money. The point is that we earn our own money and if what we spend it on makes us happy then we are successful. Who, really, gives a shit what anybody else thinks.
