I'd say: "This is the sushi and seafood bar. How may I help you?" ..........

I couldn't say its name. I'd burst out laughing.

There was a Chinese restaurant in Holland called the Wan King Garden. I kept telling my fellow travellers it was pronounced "One King ..." but it still didn't sound right somehow.

There's an apt French drink called Pschitt.

Then there's this ...

The Chinese seem particularly good at having rude-sounding restaurant names, don't they?

Shame the advertising slogan was banned. I thought it was Sofa King clever.

OK, the pun was a bit naughty - and no doubt intentional, but it IS quite clever really.

Typically, over here, after just 3 complaints about the ad being offensive, it can't be used again. There were complaints about it in 2004, but the company was allowed to carry on with it then.

So .....?? Just because 3 people found it offensive ...... obviously most folk just laughed about it or ignored it.
