Arkells frontman Max Kerman is now also a snowplow

Some cities, municipalities, and counties love to have fun with by giving their maintenance vehicles cool names. The city of Hamilton has ten new snowplows, so why not hold a public contest to give them all a name. Everyone was asked to vote on a list of twenty finalists with the top ten chosen for the new trucks.

Fans of Arkells rallied when they saw that one of the finalists was “Max Kerminator” after the band’s frontman, Max Kerman. When all the votes were tallied up, Max Kerminator received the most (by far!) followed by the inevitable Plowy McPlowface.

Here are the final results.

  • Max Kermanator – 18723
  • Plowy McPlowface – 2167
  • Clearopathra – 868
  • Icekee Wee Wee – 845
  • The Big Leplowski – 664
  • HAMBONI – 630
  • Betty Whiteout – 496
  • Mr. Plow – 403
  • Plowasaurus – 340

Max is quite chuffed, too.
