Default Quiz Team Name Bonanza

I need a quiz team name for a bunch of lawyers. Obviously the subtly filthy will get extra points but may be disallowed by our professional organisation... Any clever ideas?

How about Dunsolicitin'?

My favourite is the oh-so-subtle "My Wife Can't Wrestle, But You Should See Her Box".

Oddly, one of my team mates suggested virtually the same thing Wavid.

In the end we have gone for WHORES IN RETIREMENT, with BARELY LEGAL as a backup in case standards of taste and decency do not permit the first.

Rather strangely, this topic has reared its head once more, again in a legal setting.

My girlfriend (who is, believe it or not, a trainee solicitor) has a 6 monthly internal quiz at her firm, Ward Gethin. One of the prizes on offer was for the most witty name, and I managed to come up with an absolute belter:

Just Gethin.

Which didn't win, and something utterly witless to do with Cockatoos won instead. My theory was that it was too damn subtle. So, when the subject was brought up this time, I recommended 'Barely Legal'.

This has been going round in my head for the last couple of days, so I'm putting it down here before I forget it, crummy or not.

Last week at our usual pub quiz we avoided all the usual John "Two Shags" Prescott team names and got a laugh with John Prescott's Always On His Knees When He's In A Temple, which technically should be the other way around.
