Subject: Re: Help with Cousins subfactions

At this point, people have helped me with several of the (sub)factions in
the list I posted back on the 10th of June.
        The Not-So Vestal Virgins turned out to the Nunkies Anonymous term
for members tending the Shrine.  (I've made their icon, which you'll be
seeing soon.)
        The Tattooed Desert Guy (or Dude) Appreciation Society turned out to
be a faction for Oded Fehr, an actor much appreciated by--among others--the
DPs who created the Raven's Cellar faction.  (I've still got the Raven's
Cellar icon to do.)
        Tracy Sue's Whiffle-Bat-of-Doom Legion from Heck was dreamt up by
Tracy Sue Morris, who carried a Whiffle Bat with her as Vaq Mommy.  The
Legion from Heck was the Vaqueros' elite task force.  However, she thinks
they were actually discussed on the NA list (which would explain why they
turned up listed under LaCroix-affiliated factions, I guess).  She also
doesn't think they need an icon--especially since neither of us can figure
out a place to read up about them!

That leaves me with the following:  Swabbies, Swiss-Cheesers, Thong Throng,
Whities, and Unnamed Whities.  So, just in case there are memories out there
that can be jogged, this is what I know about them from various sources.

SWABBIES:  The Affiliations FAQ from Mr. Happy's says that "Swabbies" is a
term for Cousins.  It apparently "refers to Uncle's Season One hairdo, which
suggested to the highly impressionable that Uncle might be used to remove
ear wax. Coined by Anna Sawitzky."  Oh, and Will Steeves apparently posted

        "Hey, are you calling my friend Anna, 'highly impressionable'?
        :-) :-) Damn right that she is!!! :-) :-) :-) (hee hee... she's
        gonna kill me now, I'm sure...)" -- Will Steeves

The next lot come from the Forever Knight Faction List website:
THONG THRONG:  "Faction focused on... how can I put this delicately?...
LaCroix's choice in under-garments (joke faction)."
WHITIES:  "Obsessed with LaCroix's hairdo. (joke faction)"
UNNAMED WHITIES:  "Obsessed with LaCroix's... erm, not quite so visible
hair. ;) (joke faction)"

Finally, there's one I got off the Knights of the Cross faction site:
SWISS-CHEESERS:  I know *nothing* about it, save that it's apparently
LaCroix-affiliated in some way.  (Of course, the motif for an icon would be
incredibly obvious--but only if anyone knows what the heck they were!)
