SC National Guard apparently missed the "Boaty McBoatface" flail a few months back

Other organizations have attempted to involve their communities in similar fashion in recent months, most notably Britain’s Natural Environmental Research Council that wound up with “Boaty McBoatface” as the winner of a “name this ship” contest back in April.
And the Air Force did the same thing with this tweet:

They wound up with a bunch of cool names like Trumppelin, Deathkill Eaglehawk Firebird Hoora! Testosterone, and (of course), Bomby McBombface.
So, good luck, South Carolina National Guard. What could go wrong? After all, it’s social media, the best media.
