Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies

This was suggested as a post by alert reader Kate A. She noted that the band name has good assonance. Also, it sounds really good when said in a Monster Truck Rally voice, always a plus. My problem is that I have a hard time visualizing a screamin' cheetah wheelie. At first, I thought the name was cheeto, not cheetah, which made me think of those wheel-shaped cheetos. Imagining them screaming ("don't eat me!") is kind of twisted and funny. What is a cheetah wheelie? A cheetah with rad dirt bike tricks? Chester Cheetah? I am torn on this band name. Help me out.

Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies: undecided.

"Screaming African Cheetos" would evoke an irony between global corporate greed and the "3rd world" issues of hunger, genocide, etc. in Africa -- if you don't get cheetahs and cheetos, I added Africa to the name. "Screaming Cheetah Wheelies" says nothing to me -- is there a joke there? I missed out on hangin with the Beavis and Butthead generation ;o)

I just like the way it sounds. Like a wild guitar solo. But that's just me.
