Wednesday Wednesday

From Tuscon Weekly. Remember the name of her doll? I can't find a video or audio track of Alan Sherman's great song, "You Went the Wrong Way Old King Louis," to drop as a hint, so I'll just remind you: it's Marie Antoinette.
You went the wrong way, Old King Louie.
You made the population cry.
'Cause all you did was sit and pet
With Marie Antoinette
In your place at Versailles.
And now the country's gone kablooie.
So we are giving you the air.
That oughta teach you not to
Spend all your time fooling 'round
At the Folies Bergere.
If you had been a nicer king,
We wouldn't do a thing,
But you were bad, you must admit.
We're gonna take you and the Queen
Down to the guillotine,
And shorten you a little bit.
