This is why you don't ask the internet for input. Seriously. They got off easy with Boaty McBoatface. They could have ended up with RMS Deez Nuts or RMS FapFapFap.

I see no problem with the name. It's pretty unique and easy to remember.

I'd have voted for RMS Deez Nuts to be honest.

how do you know whether those internet voters are British?


The most likely are since it concerns a British ship. Even if the voters were not British, if they go ahead and genuinely name the ship that then I am definitely ashamed of my government's stupidity.

I want them to actually stick with the name. It will give the people working on the boat something to laugh about and keep their spirits up.

Well, look on the bright side. Worse things could have happened during your lifetime. You could've had parents like these:
