Yes, and educational, too. Welcome to the ranks of, ahem, serious
scholars. ;-)

Catching up with about ten days' worth of messages at once.... Can it be
that nobody has yet mentioned Tim Curry, singing the role of Frank N.
Furter? Clad in lingerie and four-inch high heels, he bumps and grinds and
belts out these lyrics in the first act song, "Sweet Transvestite," in "The
Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975):

I'm just a sweet Transvestite
From Transexual Transylvania.

(Sleazebag horror / science fiction / film noir / creature feature /
mystery movie critic, with eyes turning rectangular from watching way too
many DVDs, including "Cannibal! The Musical," made in 1993 but not released
until1998--which tells you all you need to know about it, believe me. I
think there's a song with "Transylvania" in a lyric in that movie, too, but
you couldn't pay me enough to watch it again and find out.)
