Is this real, or just a comedy sketch - Bruce Python perhaps?
(please tell me if the Photobucket link worked for you)

apparently:

The video does not depict the real Senator Collins or any other actual government spokesperson. Instead it is one episode of a long running humour segment delivered by Australian comedians John Clarke and Bryan Dawe. The "Front Fell Off" episode first aired back in 1991.


very funny, though

Very funny - I could imagine Bird and Fortune doing it... wouldn't be surprised if they wrote it...

I have to say that, having just read through the IMO certification requirements for tankers, there is no specific design requirement that the front should not fall off if it's hit by a wave, and nor is the use of cardboard as a structural material explicitly prohibitted.

(But both aspects are covered in the derived requirements that come from other regulations...)

"The front fell off" sketch had us laughing here - Woodsman almost thought it was real for a while.
