9. The New Age stereotype:
e.g.: 50 something lesbian, big bottomed, flowy Chicos blouse, men's black slip on loafers. Art and "drum" "therapist." Nods in affirmation at everything. No discernible sense of humor. Living breathing Saturday Night Live sketch.
Quote: "Yeah, today's been hot."
13. The Snarky One in back
e.g.: quiet, but snarky, (me) with a stupid crush on The Asshole.
Quote: "oh, really....that's so interesting..."
14. The Queen:
e.g.: 30 something, overweight, very tan, Abercrombie and Fitch shirt. Very friendly. Flamingly gay. Has a 10 year old daughter. Queens always have 10 year old daughters.
Quote: "Girl, did you hear her? Bitch told that same tired suicide story
three times already. Lawd."

"Dita Von Teese can stay sitting in her giant champagne glass, because this is the real queen of burlesque right here. If the glamorous vampire from Peru La Tigresa del Oriente bit into the precious neck of Cher impersonator Chad Michaels, the end result would look just like Chris Owens!
According to Wikipedia, Chris Owens has been dazzling audiences in New Orleans since the 1960s, but I think they are totally off with their dates. This is obviously a ravishing creature that seduced the troops when New Orleans was captured during the civil war. Those legs kicked up and down the bayou as the city burned!"
