Internet hilariously renames animals using #TheInternetNamesAnimals

Sir Huggles Von Deathcuddle? That's what one Twitter user suggested the grizzly bear be renamed.


In honour of Boaty McBoatface, the internet has decided to lend a hand to renaming animals using the hashtag #TheInternetNamesAnimals.

You may have heard the story earlier this week where Britain’s National Environmental Council (NERC) launched an online campaign to name its new research vessel. The council asked the public to choose names of historical figures and landmarks. Someone suggested Boaty McBoatface and the internet went crazy. To date, Boaty McBoatface is the clear front-runner.

Here are just a few gems. Enjoy.
