This and that!
*G* Based on a story on "The Colbert Report" about a restaurant called "The Pink Taco":

Is the name "Pink Taco" for a Mexican restaurant that specializes in a dish called the "Pink Taco" offensive?

Yes!
1(9.1%)
No!
3(27.3%)
WTF? Why would it be offensive? I'm confused
7(63.6%)

Now... apparently "Pink Taco" is a slang word for women's genitals (!)

I knew that, and my answer is still Yes! to #1
1(9.1%)
I knew that, and my answer is still No! to #1
3(27.3%)
WTF - really? Damn, I'm changing my vote to Yes! for #1
2(18.2%)
Really? Had no clue... but still No! for #1
3(27.3%)
*ggl* Clicking on radio buttons is FUN!

So why am I up so late? My boy kitty had surgery on Monday, and was really out of it Tuesday morning, so I took off work to take him in. Could be the pain, could be the pain medicine, could be irritable bowel disease, could be inflammation, so they gave him meds for all of them, and he's acting normal... well as normal as you would if you'd just gotten two teeth pulled and a lump off your shoulder! I'd called in to say I'd try to be in after lunch - let's face it, there's nothing happening at work for me right now except reading - but then I fell asleep with the cat, and didn't wake up until 3 pm! So I called, and slept some more. So, now I'm up late! Better get to bed, though; I feel badly about not keeping in better touch with work. I just don't have the "guilt reflexes" I used to, and I'm worried that I come across as too irresponsible sometimes. I'm not - but I may come across that way. I better get in early tomorrow. So - to bed!

Well, they're not going to make you order the house speciality, so... Ehn. Is it a real place? Or Colbertian whimsy?

A real place - *G*. He interviewed the owner, and the woman who was protesting the name; it's in Albequerque, I believe.

"Scrumble"? Ummm... sure. *G*

*coughs* Just because it's offensive doesn't mean it stops being horribly funny.

To bed with you, Ros! *hugs* I love you.

Offensive? No. Stupid? Yes. I hope he has money to burn. But WTF was up with the woman who could not say 'vagina'? It isn't a dirty word!


Aw, hugs to your kitty, hope he feels better quickly.

I don't want to know. Not after learning that the "chi-chi" was named "breast" because it contains (coconut) milk. It's okay for the chi-chi, but other anatomical parts become highly questionable. {odd look}

*L*! God knows!

The guy running the restaurant thought it was odd to object ("we're just naming it after the special dish!"), and further said it was strange to object to it in the town that the play "The Vagina Monologues" came from... *L*!
