What is "Cousteaus" in:
[After the ship got down, a couple of Cousteaus wannabes found the wreck about thirty years ago]
Thanks a lot.
Can it mean like "sailors"?
I agree that a "Cousteau wannabe" is not an "ambitious sailor". It is, as was explained, someone who wants to be a famous underwater explorer. I wouldn't describe Jacques Cousteau as a sailor.
