How about a Rose Proper in Cheerful Splendor?  I like Bertram's idea, 
just as a ammusing way to get the device in the books.  Quick, submit it 
with the April 1st letter.  Of course, the artists all have to draw it wrong
(i.e., face sideways :-) ).

Oh, stuff Lancaster, I never liked the Tudors anyway.  Just a French 
imposition on Fair England which resulted in the spilling of more English 
Royal Blood then the whole War of the Roses.

Leifr, who confesses to have thought up this gacky design in the first place.
But the sign was Lady Yseabeau's idea.
