    Cool Make Argo Navis Great Again!

    This is a proposal to reunite Argo Navis, the biggest constellation that ever existed, and make it even bigger. Lacaille's misguided efforts to throw Ptolemy under the chariot must be undone. We can put Argo Navis together again, and make it the awesome constellation it deserves to be! EXCELSIOR!

    Here's how we do it. The new Argo Navis® brand SuperConstellation will be made up of the three sub-constellations Carina, Puppis, and Vela. Vela (the sails) will be joined by two other "sail" constellations, Pyxis (now the foresail) and Antila (topsail and crow's nest and flag). Carina is the keel and hull, but Puppis is the bow, not the stern, with a mermaid figurehead as well. Volans is changed from being a flying fish to the ship's side oar (or maybe a pontoon), and Musca stops being a fly and changes into the ship's rudder. Presto! The Argo Navis® brand SuperConstellation is back!

    Methinks you may be a few days late for the best day for this sort of thing...

    It is never too late to cause trouble and mess things up.

    What a great segue for a certain joke related to the thread title that I can’t make under board rules.

    That was in the fifth-season episode, "Tainted Meat," right at the end.
