Swedish Contest Let the People Name New Train Trainy McTrainface

You see, this is what happens when you hand the power to the people. We abuse it for laughs. The truth of this story runs much deeper, though. When given the power to the people via internet poll to name a new public transit boat in Sweden recently, all the people chose Boat McBoatface, and the actual people running the pole refused to use the name, upsetting many who voted.

So they decided when launching their new train this year, they would offer the same contest and take whatever name wins, despite how silly it may be. Well, pretty clear to see where the people went with it. Thus, Trainy McTrainface was born and embraced by the people.

Poseidon and Miriam were both close as well. But luckily, Trainy McTrainface won, and the world cheered in unison for a brief moment at the hilarious victory.
