    I'm glad she's keeping the name and if I ever find myself close to one, I'll go eat there.

      The restaurant, which serves bowls of rice, noodles, or salad with various toppings and sauces

      I won't..Cheap,overpriced rice noodles with sauces,no thanks. And i don't care for the name either.

      Why are you glad that someone wants to keep their restaurant with a name that refers to a serious illness?

      • Appaloosa

        Because that was never their intention and I, as a paying customer, would never have thought about it in the same way you did. Diversity, just as long as it conforms to your diversity right?

          You're barking up the wrong tree here. I don't know where your hostility is coming from. I never mentioned diversity in my comment or any comments in this thread.

            No hostility here, sorry if it came across that way! You got swept up in my Royal We, and your objection was specific.

      Understandable. You can't get a reservation at Necrotizing Fasciitis or Dengue Fever for love, nor money .

      Agreed. People are way too touchy nowadays, it's essentially the age of outrage... and worst of all, people think this unhealthy behaviour is cool.

        I know, right? People these days take such a jaundiced view of the world. Delightful, refreshing Summertime beverages like Poon Tang, Jungle Fever, Mandingo and Marburg Virus never even had a chance in the marketplace.

          Whatever you say!

            I'll tell you one thing for free, the thought police can have my Gookinade when they pry it from my cool, refreshed fingers.

              That was a hilarious share. Thanks for that! :D

              Where can I get that Jaundiced view of the World soup? I need some cheering up!

              Yellow Fever is a safe bet, you might have to make a special request though! It's on the secret menu :D

    People enjoy being offended, and have the mistaken belief that their being offended is important and meaningful.

    • WhoNeedszZz
      +7

      I agree, but at the same time the name is offensive to a population of people because it refers to a serious illness that afflicted and killed people. I wouldn't say it is as offensive as the SJWs are making it out to be, but it certainly is a really distasteful and poor choice of name. I wouldn't want to be eating at a place that refers to liver damage...

      He said, the irony still ringing.

      • Appaloosa (edited 6 months ago)

        The irony is thick here. As it usually is!

        • AdelleChattre
          +7

          It's everywhere else they've got the irony deficiencies.

          • Appaloosa

            It may be the laughing at irony we lack, not the lack of irony.

    I believe people have lost the meaning of "racist". I would agree that it isn't racist, but it is a phrase that carries not one, but two quite negative meanings to two different cultures. What I'm tired of is people trying to take a word or phrase that has a long history of a deeply negative meaning (not just connotation) and try to make it into positive. This includes changing a letter or two and then claiming it is a different word.

      If you haven't tried their cirrhosis tots with parsnips and Hep. C aioli, you haven't lived!

    I don't think it's intended to be a racist name. However, I question the name for other reasons. I would not want to eat at a restaurant whose name happens to be the same as that of a disease. I'd have exactly the same reaction if the restaurant was called "Small Pox" for example. So, I'm not planning on eating there, but that's because I feel it's poor branding (to have a restaurant with the name of a communicable disease).

    • WhoNeedszZz

      Agreed! Nice timing btw. My last comment follows what you said.

      • StarFlower

        Yeah! I totally agree with all your comments on this particular article. Looks like the article got several comments all at the same time, I hadn't kept up with the threads until now.
