Drag king name suggestions
May 10, 2019 3:09 PM   Subscribe

My wife is going to MC a drag show for high school performers (her students). We need a beach bro drag king name for her. But, because of the high school setting, the wide world of drag king name puns has narrowed to what's an appropriate joke a teacher can make.

We are absolutely drawing a blank. Persona: a chill good-vibes dude, man bun, sandals. Wife is Filipino and says "they can use that too!"
Name this King!

Sandy Balzac is amazing but as a teacher, sorry but please no
Harry Legs is my vote! Or Harry Toze.

Maybe no ball jokes? I'm so excited that this high school is cool with a drag show that I'd hate for anything too risque to fuck it up. Yes paranoid.

What subject does your wife teach?

'Musselman' is an archaic term for 'Muslim' as well as a contemporary surname among mainly white people, and when it was current, the vast majority of references to Muslims here in the West were derogatory.

Oh my god, +1 for Math Damon. I laughed explosively and to the consternation of the family members around me.
