Hmmm. Maybe. Probably not enough people would recognize a Modesty  
Blaise decal today, more's the pity. To say nothing of Lola Montez...

<choke> I assumed you wanted a positive image...

I STR that the legendary novice nun/martial artist Wing Chun is often  
popularly believed to have been a noodle and bean curd maker and  
vendor before it became necessary for her to learn to defend herself,  
and some of her mixing and kneading techniques have been alleged to  
have been incorporated into the martial arts system that bears her name.

But, again, we've got the problem of recognition.

So what's all this about grunting testosterone anyway? Everybody  
knows testosterone doesn't grunt; it sings in the barely audible note  
of a heavy steel spring under almost unimaginable tension, awaiting  

"Don't make us go back to our liberal city home with tales of  
prejudice and bigotry in the heart of Caid!!!"
