Burlesque: Choose kinky name from Dulux chart

Dearest Madame,

As a camp follower to the burlesque scene in London and Manchester (one has been known to take one's clothes off to Loretta Lynn numbers if 50 quid and a few free drinks are on offer) can I suggest a much simpler way of finding one's burlesque name?

1. Go to B&Q / Homebase
2. Go to the paints section
3. Pick out a Dulux colour chart
4. Select your burlesque name from the choice of shades on offer (eg 'Sahara Kisses' 'Cherry Scarlet' 'Dirty Protest')

Why do they ALWAYS name themselves after sweets? A night of burlesque is apt to give one toothache of the soul.

With kindest regards as always.

Darling C,

What a wonderful suggestion. Click here for some ideas from Dulux. See colour bar at the top and click and then roam over the louche shades of double entendre. I especially like Hibiscus Delight, Old Yella and my fave, Cumquat Cream.

What's great about the Dulux chart is that you don't know what the name is until you've clicked on the colour. The one I chose turned out to be called Electric Energy - I won't push my luck. I'll stick with that.

I've had huge feedback over my British Museum 'trash alley' protest, with supportive letters since published in The Times.
