It seems like I face some new, frustrating dilemma almost every day. For a while, I tried to solve each one on my own, but I just can't do it anymore. I'm in over my head, and I need your help, Wooters! So, each week, I'm going to post a problem that I'm facing and you're going to help me solve it. But here's the catch: the solutions need to be puns. That's right: logic is secondary; puns are the primary goal here. I'll choose the best pun and announce it in next week's post.

THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: Horror-Movie-Themed Tea Shop!

You guys, I need some help! AND QUICK! I'm working on opening my own store. It's a horror-movie-themed tea shop. I've got pretty much everything figured out - a location, some funding, all of the appropriate licenses, etc. - but I FORGOT TO NAME IT! I know - SO DUMB! I've only been able to come up with a few ideas:

  • Friday the ThirTEAnth
  • The Hills Have Chais
  • Suspiria, a film by Darjeelingo Argento
     

But, I'm not sold on any of these. You guys can do better, I just know it! So please, post your horror movie tea puns in the comments for me to consider! Thanks in advance!

Last week's winner (dog costume): Arf. Kelly from user benbyerly.

Other Favorites: Dogtor Who? from Slydon; Bichon "Puffy" Combs from dracjr; Limp Biscuit from susiequeued.

I'm not a big tea drinker or a horror movie aficionado, so nothing jumped to mind. I was reading through the comments, trying to decide whether to try to come up with something (which probably wouldn't have been any good), and realized it would be pointless. Salem's Pot is the winner. I can actually imagine a store with that name, which isn't the case with most of the other suggestions (including Sean's examples).

Yes, there have been a few movies based on the book. Here's a cut from the most famous one (1935): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKO3PGORW8o
