Help name blog by adult toy store employee

Help name that blog: adult toy store clerk edition.

One of my good friends would like to write a blog about her experiences as an adult toy store clerk. She's a clever lady and an engaging writer but she's stuck on a title. You people are, collectively, the most witty group I know. Do you have any suggestions for a good name? Thanks!

Additional Info: She is in the US but would like to make this anonymous and not tie it to a specific location or store. She is sex positive and likes her employer, so she's not looking to knock anybody down, just to share her experiences, good and bad.

There's a very well known sex store called "Toys in Babeland," so I'd skip that whole train of thought.

4ster's suggestion sounds like someplace you'd find Car Talk's John "Bugsy" Lawlor.

I shouldn't think that a sex shop that got its name from another work could legitimately complain about someone else deriving a name from the same work. I think Babe in Toyland is fantastic.

Unfortunately their lawyer might have to send a cease and desist letter to the blogger to avoid the risk of trademark dilution.

So many ridiculously awesome answers! I knew you guys would come up with things far better than we could. She's still making up her mind, but her favorite were Cleanup on Aisle 4, Silicone Alley, I'm Getting This for a Friend and About a Toy. I'll update when she makes up her mind. All Up in the What Now and Just Leave the Change on the Counter made me laugh hard enough that they got best answer, too, though, because I posted the damn question so I get to help picking best answers.

She also loved Babe in Toyland but Babeland is so well known that she things people would assume she works there. Thank you all for your help. It makes me want to have Metafilter name everything that I own, too. Seriously, if I could get away with it, I would.
