Although I have never done drag, I keep my options open. I’ve always said that, if I decided to DQ, I’d pick the name Jennifer Convertibles – even though I know it’s a little New York-centric and if I decided to drag myself into stardom it would be worldwide stardom. It doesn’t really stand up to the legendary names like International Chrysis (!!!). It barely stands up west of Philadelphia. My second choice was always Mariel Boatlift, which sadly betrays my age.
In spite of my gazillions of hours watching cartoons, how did I not think of renaming myself Hannah Barbera in that instance? Thanks for opening my eyes. If I decide to DQ it before tomorrow, I’ll race every queen on the planet to copyright it. Otherwise, I’ll just congratulate whoever does. And I can’t believe you didn’t hang onto Hannah B. for yourself.
