I thought I seen that one already. I read a (UK) novel in which a character was the envy of his neighbors because his long driveway was always gritted even before the roads were done and he told them he bunged (bribed) the council when he sent them a "Seasons Grittings" telegram. It amused me.

I can now exclusively reveal the winner:

Quote:
Oldham Council has named its new gritter Nicole Saltslinger after the X-factor judge and former Pussycat Doll.

Ten-year-old Eve McGrath came up with the name, which beat off the challenge from hundreds of other competition entries including Gritney Houston, Grit Expectations and Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti-Slip Machiney.

The primary school pupil, who is a big fan of the singer Nicole Scherzinger, was invited to a special naming ceremony at the council depot.

The new lorry will now join a fleet of gritters including Freddie Salted, Walter the Salter and Gritney Spears.
More here.

I agree. Totally a winner.

Every time I read this thread title, I read "Booty McBootface ..." ... which probably just says something about me.

Or maybe it's just my Canadian/Scottish accent.

The vessel formerly known as Boaty McBoatface.

Britain's new polar research ship is ready to go in the water.

The newly assembled hull of the RRS Sir David Attenborough is now standing on the slipway of the Cammell Laird yard in Birkenhead, awaiting launch day.

Weather and tide permitting, she should slide into the River Mersey on Saturday.

The 200m vessel will replace the James Clark Ross and the Endurance, which between them have almost 50 years' service in support of UK polar science.

The Attenborough is the ship the public had wanted to call "Boaty McBoatface" in an online poll, before ministers stepped in to choose a more appropriate name.

She represents the largest commercial ship built in Britain in three decades.

The hull should make for quite a sight as her steelwork floats out into Liverpool's famous waters.

What I find astonishing is the fact that it is the biggest commercial ship built in the UK in three decades, for Heaven's sake!
All the big new cruise ships seem to be built in Germany, Italy and France, and South Korea is the place to go for supertankers, container ships and bulk carriers.
