Doncaster council asks public to name its gritters and it’s today’s best thing

Undeterred by all that Boaty McBoatface palaver, someone at Doncaster council thought it would be a good idea to do this. And you’ll be very glad they did.

😱*Puts on tin hat* 😱

We would like your name suggestions for two of our new gritting vehicles, please.

Keep em clean and be original – we'd prefer not to spend the next few days trawling through responses of Gritty McGritface and Gary Gritter. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/rCH9HneHJe

We’ll open the most popular suggestions up to a public vote. Once they’ve been vetted by a very serious panel of civil servants and had their comedy value assessed by a vigorous, five-stage process of course. pic.twitter.com/uJFrsxTRMQ

– The Subzero Hero
– Mr Plow
– Usain Salt

GRITSY BITSY!!!!

It just hast to be Spready Mercury

More updates when we get them. Letting the public choose the name for an expensive bit of kit – what can possibly go wrong?

But forget about Boaty McBoatface, this will always be our favourite competition winner.

UPDATE

We have a winner!

We are DELIGHTED to be able to confirm what our new gritters will be called, following the #DoncasterGrittingWorldCup final!

They will be called:

Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti-Slip Machiney

And
