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: Rock Band Names Based on Kids' Books!

You guys, I'm starting a rock band. But not just any rock band. We're only going to play songs based on kids' books. The problem is, I don't have a band name yet! I need something that both sides, the rock and the children's literature. Here are the ideas I'm working with:

  • Charlie and the Rock-olate Factory
  • Goodnight Keith Moon
  • Where the Wild Things Gwar
     

I know! I know! They suck! That's why I need your help. So post a better one in the comments and I'll choose my favorite!

Last week's winner (historical restaurant): Thai-tanic from user sirgeb27 (with an assist from subtraho, who came up with  Pietanic.)

Other Favorites: The Civil Pour (A Brewpub) from subtraho; The Fertile Croissant from fgarriel; Bataan Death Munch from jcolag.

Not obvious enough?

Hrmm... apparently Woot is blocking me from listing the name of the Herman Melville novel about a great white whale ( and Musician/DJ).

Actually, the band Tilly and the Wall IS named after the children's book, Tillie and the Wall.

But since I should offer a pun,

Blondie and the Three Bears
or, Sister Golden Hair and the Three Bears

Jack Black the Giant Killer (he is a member of Tenacious D, after all)
