Joke for sail. 

Last year, an online competition to name a ship for the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) resulted in the stupid and embarrassing name "Boaty McBoatface." It was so stupid and embarrassing that they refused to name their $244,520,000 ship that and named it after David Attenborough instead. 

But that wasn't the last you've heard of Boaty McBoatface. 

NERC has finally smashed a bottle of champaign and christened a submarine "Boaty McBoatface" and is sending it straight to Antarctica. Thankfully, it's an unmanned sub, so no self-respecting captain will have to pilot something so humiliating.
