This School Definitely Regrets Asking The Public To Name It
Much like not leaving a teaspoon face down in the sink, there is a lesson that the poor, unsuspecting institutions of this world must learn over and over again: never let the public name you.
If you do, you end up with a £200 million Royal Research Ship named RRS Boaty McBoatface, or a primary school called 'The Adolf Hitler School For Friendship and Tolerance'. Catchy? Yes. But wrong.

It all started when a Texas primary school (currently called Robert E. Lee Elementary) asked for suggestions of what its name should be changed to. This is because, if you're interested, Robert E. Lee liked slaves and racism and stuff.
Fox news then revealed this wonderful list of wonderment that the public came up with:
The fun doesn't end there, however, as there were plenty more suggestions in the hat (note: they probably aren't using a hat. Though we really hope they are). These include:
- Bee Movie
- Bleeding Heart Liberal Elementary
- Communist Elementary
- IGNORANCE IS BLISS ELEMENTARY
- Kanye West Elementary
- The Elementary School Formerly Known as Robert E. Lee
- Vladimir Lenin Elementary School
Voting public, we're proud of you. Real proud.
