The BAT Challenge: WHOZAT?

Today I saw the distinctive vehicle used by a local burlesque act to get around town and beyond. In honor of this weekend's burlesque festival, the challenge this week is to name the burlesque act.

Leave your guesses in the comments section, being sure to use a distinct moniker so you're not mistaken for another player. Enjoy!

MoBFathers?

David Marc Fischer said...

Not the MoBFathers, but there's certainly a connection.

Now if I could only figure out what MoB (Ministry of Burlesque) is, exactly!

Bicycle?

David said...

BenchPress Burlesque?

David Marc Fischer said...

Not a bicycle. And not BenchPress Burlesque either, David.

David said...

An auto?

David Marc Fischer said...

Yes, Dave! An auto!!

David said...

I'm gonna guess that the auto is a firetruck.

David said...

I'm also guessing a hearse.

David said...

Black Cat Burlesque?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, no, no, Dave--though the firetruck is, I think, in the right color family.

David said...

BCB uses a hearse.

How about a cab? A checker cab, that'd be cool.

David Marc Fischer said...

The car isn't the type associated with a particular business or function, Davey.

David said...

My friend Google isn't helping me much on this one. Other than some Burlesque car washes, I guess I'm throwing in the towel.

David Marc Fischer said...

But Dave-y, God doesn't like quitters!

I doubt you've got anything to lose (except time, of course) by playing some more....

Big Apple Burlesque?

Ellen said...

How about the incredibly funny Jewishgirlsgonebad??? On their tour of colleges perhaps they travel in a train of SMART cars?

David Marc Fischer said...

Negatory, Ellen, but whoa--I think you're on the right track gender-wise!

Ellen said...

It it a burlesque act consisting of more than one female?

Ellen said...

The Schlep Sisters????

David Marc Fischer said...

Whoah, Ellen, you're getting very warm! It's a burlesque act consisting of more than one woman, and "Schlep Sisters" is about half right!!

caprice said...

I have no idea about a vehicle, but to me Burlesque+sisters=the Pontani sisters.

David Marc Fischer said...

You're in the ballpark, Caprice, but it's not those wonderful Pontanis. Too many of 'em, for one thing.

Ellen said...

The Wau Wau Sisters?

David Marc Fischer said...

Yay, Ellen--you got it!!!

Anyone want to find a picture of the vehicle???
