The most apt name for 2011:

A Norwegian new to sailing bought a boat to sail around the world and struck a sandbank outside his home harbor. While he was waiting for the tide to rise, he made himself a cup of tea. His stove caught fire, set the galley alight and burned the boat down to the waterline.He escaped unhurt in a rubber dinghy. His name? Bornt Olose.
