Color names

My husband suggested the following color names for Black Bunny sock yarns:

Tail Fin (as in 50s 2-tone cars)
Drag Queen
Figure Skater's Eyeshadow (light blue, natch)
Goth Chick
Bouffant
Home Perm
Vinyl Flooring
Woody Wagon
Fireflies
Hairspray
Major Appliance
Tiki Room
Fuzzy Dice
Doublewide
TV Dinner
Orange Espadrille
Phillipe Floppe (he is the Frenchman who invented beach shoes)
Leisure Suit

Anyone got any other suggestions?

I always thought song titles would be cool. Like "Ruby Tuesday", "paint it black", etc etc.

What colors did he have in mind for Leisure Suit? My Dad had a beyond ugly orange and white one, and he wore it to work on some Fridays- work happened to be principal of the same jr. high I went to.

How about a color of different yellows called Suicide Blonde? (That's what my mother used to call people with poorly bleached blonde hair, because as she said, they "dyed by their own hand ...")

8 O'Clock Sharp--Liz's band
Rubber Biscuit--one of my favorite Blues Brothers songs
Yo Mamma--just because
Just Sayin'--for the Wolvies
Franklin's Tower--10 points to anyone who knows the band's name

You figure out the colors. I'm tired.

Marilyn, isn't it a Dead song? I could be wrong.

I'll buy the Leisure Suit, it will go with my 70's Living Room colorway!

Fab names! Who cares what colors they turn out to be. Please save Drag Queen for me. And if you're going down that pathway you could do a whole series of drag queens like Eva Destruction, Ida Slapter, Tequila Mockingbird, Lois Carmen Denominator, Anita Cocktail, and Barbra Seville.

I love the Drag Queen names! Such fun. Must see Fireflies. What about Remodel names....Plaster dust, Kilz, 50s wallpaper, 70s bathroom, Drop Cloth.
