You can only imagine the kind of response you would receive after giving the Internet a say in naming a $287 million research vessel. (Britain's answer: Boaty Mcboatface.) While we applaud the creativity, we're even more amused by the train that decided to rename itself in honor of the situation. Meet Trainy Mctrainface. Mashable reports that passengers were more than amused to see the train pull into England's South West stations through a ride in the south and southwest regions of the country. 

According to the Evening Standard, the surprise name drop was "a one-off by one of our creative guards who wanted to bring a smile to the face of our customers." We applaud you, mysterious guard. Now where's Planey Mcplaneface?
