"Do we need a Reg unit of charge? On the basis of the comments here, we could either go with the cup thing, or something about nylon dresses."

I hereby nominate the knickers as an official Reg unit of charge. It's the electric charge generated by one pair of size medium 100% polyester knickers worn by an appropriate human test subject walking by sensitive equipment in a STP (standard temperature and pressure) environment. Color and style will need to be established by further committee research.
