CocoaPuff Says:


I would throw out there that it is not so much offensive to me as a Jew, but merely very very strange. Like naming your child memorial service, or requiem. You know what I mean?

This just makes me think of radishes, and seeing as it could be offensive to Jewish people, I'd say it's unusable anyway.
