'Skatey McSkateface' Voted by Public As Name of New Skate Park

Whenever naming rights are opened up to the public for suggestions and are voted on, things usually turn out horribly.

Back in 2016, an open online vote resulted in a $250M research vessel being named the RSS Boaty McBoatface.

A vote to rename a public school from Robert E. Lee Elementary ended up in having nominations like Schooly McSchoolface, John Cena Elementary, and Adolf Hitler School for Friendship and Tolerance.

Now, a town in England opened up public voting for a new skate park even though they were "fully aware of the possible outcomes."

As a result, the new skate park will be called Skatey McSkateface.

The name was one of eight that were allowed to be voted on and were approved by the Southend-on-Sea Borough Council. Other names included Central Skate Park and Warrior Skate Park.

"The facility was always going to be something we and the public could have some fun with. The most important part of this is the fact a fantastic new facility is being built in the town center for children, young people and adults to use, and the benefit this will bring to the town," said Kevin Robinson, a local cabinet member.
