Thesaurus Emergency: Throats Are Not Sexy!

It's advertising like this that makes me often wonder why I didn't go into this field. Some of these leave me saying, "I definitely could have done this better."  Let's take our French friend Louis Philippe and his line of make-up. Couldn't someone have whispered to him that there has to be a better way to describe this part of a woman's body. "Naw!, It's a throat, then call it a throat! and while we're at it let's cover the throat with a film."  

I would have gone with Neck, but what do I know about make-up? Maybe it does leave a film over the skin, but I would have picked a better word. This came from a 1944 Life Magazine and this wasn't the only gem.
