Internet Names Recycling Machine ‘Shreddie Van Halen’

You’d think people would have learned by now that you can’t trust the internet to name anything.


The keyboard warriors that previously brought you ‘Boaty McBoatface’ and ‘Mr. Splashypants’ have now turned their sights on a recycling machine in Brockport, NY.


The machine’s maker, Sunnking, held an online contest to name the metal-munching device. The winner? ‘Shreddie Van Halen’, which edged out ‘Shreddy Krueger’ with 36% of the vote.


‘Shreddy Munster’, ‘Slim Shreddy’, and ‘Sir Chomps-a-Lot’ rounded out the top 5.


Which name would you have picked for the machine?
