Here is a link to a page that Tara found on the great wide intarwebs. It's a bunch of excerpts from Susan Sontag's "Notes on Camp." It made the think about how Mad King Thomas is sometimes and sometimes not playing with a camp aesthetic. It's certainly a word people have used to describe us before.
I also ran across this definition of burlesque, which people have not used to describe us before, but which I think is relevant - specifically the first definition, but maybe in multiple ways:
A literary or dramatic work that ridicules a subject either by presenting a solemn subject in an undignified style or an inconsequential subject in a dignified style.
A ludicrous or mocking imitation; a travesty: The antics of the defense attorneys turned the trial into a burlesque of justice.
A variety show characterized by broad ribald comedy, dancing, and striptease.
Too bad if we put burlesque on our promo material people will keep showing up asking "where're the naked girls?"
