REYKJAVIK, Iceland - Iceland has just announced that it will be naming its brand new state-of-the-art aircraft carrier in honor of South African President Nelson Mandela.

Plans are to christen the vessel in early February in front of members of the Nelson Mandela family including his great grandson Nootimbu Nelson Fatinta who is a stand up comedian who uses the professional stage name Lion Boy.
The Nelson Mandela will be stationed at Reykjavik Harbor and will help defend Iceland from any attack from that lunatic North Korean Kim Jong Un.
SIDENOTE: According to reports the aircraft carrier is one of the largest in the entire world and it will have a total of 7 McDonald's located throughout the ship.
