Any of Babs Windsor's characters 'real names'-not Goldie Locks but...?

Well of course there's the immortaly ones from Cleo:

The Khasi of Kalabar, his daughter the Princess Jelli and right-hand thug Bungdit Din...

Oh - which reminds me of another of my favourite lines, where the Khasi tells his rope-trick performer to leave the stage:

"Fakir... off!"

You know, you'd think I'd actually check stuff before I post it, wouldn't you? Jimster and Natalie have got me working so hard here that I daren't raise my head from the desk for very long, or they start cracking the whip. I tried to take a break for five minutes to have some bread and water for lunchtime and they set the dogs on me...

It's a hard life here at h2g2 towers...smiley - wah

[that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!]
