Don't you just love it when the public vote to name things, such as this new polar research vessel. The name, "Boaty McBoatface," is leading vote.

Will they change the rules when voting is over, or will they adopt the name? Would you like to captain the ship, Boaty McBoatface? hehehe

However one of its robot submersibles will be named Boaty McBoatface. Ah, the great British art of compromise!
