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: Political Hockey Teams!

Okay, you guys - I've got a crazy idea. So, you know how the NHL is locked out? And election season just came to an end? Well, what if we started a HOCKEY LEAGUE, but instead of getting pro players, we just used all the POLITICIANS who didn't get elected? Now, here's where you come in: I need some team names. Here's three I was able to come up with:

  • The Hip Checks and Balances
  • Puck Barrel Spending
  • The Detroit Right Wings

But I need more than that! So, please: post your political hockey team names in the comments and I'll pick my favorite next week!

Last week's winner (horror movie tea shop): Tales from the Sipped from user tarataylor914.

Other Favorites: Dreg Me To Hell from pmillsrulz; Dr. Kettle and Mr. Chai from jcolag; Final Des-Tea-Nation from Howler81.

Hm. The hard part is wedging a hockey reference in, when actual hockey teams seem not to do so...

It's not a political reference but my favorite hockey-pun team name I've ever seen has to be "Hat Trick Swayze"

It's funny, when I tried to type the word L A M E (without spaces), it came up as "canned vegetables."

It's between this and Philly Busters imo, the rest of us aren't even throwing out any puns, we're just making up hockey politic themed names

The DC Polaricers - all teams consist entirely of either left wingers or right wingers.

Wisconsin Super Puck Packers - spend to the cap, but don't always win.

The NeutralZones - the only moderate team with equal red and blue representation.

Barack Ice-Barkers - winners of the Electoral Collegiate Draft.

Florida Fiscal Cliff Jumpers

Colorado Congressional Gridlockers

After narrowly avoiding the fiscal cliff, VP Joe Biden declared it to be a "Big Pucking Deal" regarding the efforts to bring both sides to center ice.
