David Cameron mentioned Boaty McBoatface during Prime Minister's Questions to the sheer amazement of everybody watching.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn kicked off the session by wishing Sir David Attenborough a happy birthday and imploring the PM to do the same.
He obliged, but didn't quite stop there...
Praising Sir David, the PM said: "Many of us in this house feel that we grew up with him as our teacher about the natural world, and about the environment, and he is a remarkable man."
Cameron 'proud to say' that survey ship will be named after Attenborough. #PMQs

Then he uttered a phrase no-one ever imagined would come from his lips: "Boaty McBoatface."

"I'm proud to say that the royal survey ship - the Arctic ship - is going to be named after David Attenborough. There was strong support for Boaty McBoatface, but I think the life raft on the boat - the submarine on the boat - is going to be named Boaty McBoatface.
"But, quite rightly, Attenborough will take top billing."
Nobody could cope.
