USS Ponce -- seriously? I'm guessing it's named for Juan Ponce de Leon, and not a pimp or an effeminate man.
I was just about to comment on the ship's name myself...
Never heard of that meaning for "Ponce" before. Looking it up, it looks like it's slang in the UK, but not in the US. I'm guessing you two are from the UK, in which case I might mention something about an aircraft of yours named "Nimrod".
