There Can Be Only Pun: Puck Politics

by Sean Adams

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.
