    And let's get rid of the word, "tetons" in the name of the National Park.  Can you believe we have a National Park that is named, "big tits" in French?

    This aggression will not stand, man.

    •  I was prepared to say (0+ / 0-)

      the diarist was maybe over reacting, but then you showed up and proved her point.

    •  Are you fucking serious (0+ / 0-)

      or is that just snark?

      Lets rename a national park because the name chosen mean big tits in French?  

      I guess we should go around the world and start renaming everything that may be some sort of insult in some other language than the one predominantly spoken in that nation.  It's not even a fucking insult.  So what if it's called big tits in French?  Are you that puritanical that you cannot even bear it knowing it means big tits in another language?  Is it because it elicits a laugh from you when you hear it?

      Good god.  You know you jumped the PC shark when you want to start renaming shit because it means something else in another language half way around the world.

      Oh and BTW the name was taken from native Indian tribes who lived in that area.

      at the same time.

      Or how about the German towns on my routes home from Belgium. I have a fine choice - Titz on the A46 or Wankum on the A40

      And the Brits might want to rethink Penistone.

      And the French have the twin villages of Us and Marines - I kid you not, they are on the same signpost just North of Paris.

      And last but not least, the housing development opposite my late grandparents cottage was called Clitsome - google it.
