49. That Sass, Poor Yorick!
We find it delightful that they came up with their own Shakespeare pun, since the Bard himself employed positively doused his plays with sexual innuendo ("some have greatness thrust upon them," anyone?).

See Morgue Anne, Pervert Hero, Scandal from Bohemia, Sailor St. Claire, La Petite Mort, and other sexy performers strut their iambic pentameters. Does that make sense? No! But neither do most burlesque puns. Anyway, there's a different lineup each night.
