Jane Lynch Discovers Her Stripper Name

Jane Lynch stars as a therapist in Jill Soloway's upcoming movie, "Afternoon Delight," about a woman who hires a stripper to be her live-in nanny, and as part of the promotion for the film, Soloway and Lynch sat down with Vulture to figure out Lynch's stripper name.

It's a game we've all played; first street you lived on plus pet's first name type of thing. Lynch receives prompts like "first perfume/ western state," but our favorite has to be "favorite fruit/favorite shoe," because it yielded this answer: Mango Chucks.

Best stripper name ever.

You can watch the whole video here, which also includes Lynch doing, for a second, a sassy little dance that might go hand-in-hand with a place called Mango Chucks (she decides it would be a better club name than stripper name, anyway).
