Pool Team Names: Clever, Funny, Great, Strange... -

Was wondering what team names are out there that you consider to be Clever, Funny, Great, or even Strange.
A very funny one I heard of recently is a team Borana is on named "I'd Hit That".
I played on a team called the Devil's Advocates which was mostly made up of guys from Central America and me. I was messing with them one day over their pronunciation of our team name and it morphed to "Diablo's Avocados". We all thought it was pretty funny, although somewhat lame, but we officially changed our team name and I even had a graphics friend make up a new logo.
What Clever, Funny, Great, or Strange names do you know?

During this past Super Billiards Expo, when taking a stroll in the downstairs level of the V.F. convention center, they have a constant stream of team match-up announcements and results over the P.A. system.
I about lost my footing on the stairs when I heard over the P.A. system, "[so-and-so team] will now play Tap That @ss. Will [so-and-so team] please take your positions around Table #134, and Tap That @ss as well?"
<-- picture me in this position, sliding and bouncing down the stairs

My teams name is Don't Have a Stroke.
We named it that because the captain is 62 and looks like he might have a stroke.....two weeks into our first session he had a minor heartattack. Not funny at that point.....maybe we should have changed the name.

So I was looking through this thread and found post #12..."Born to Loose"
Maybe Richardson will correct me if I'm wrong, but could that have been the team from Canada that we played way back when we took 5th at nationals?
They had some story about how the guy who made the shirts messed up but they didn't have time to get new ones. And one guy had a hot pink cue.
Maybe I'm wrong.
