EngineerAU: Wow, that's almost as bad as the supermarket chain named "Ralph's" which in English is slang for "to throw up".

brug: I grew up in the South and I don't think I have EVER heard this particular epithet.Anyone else?/yes, of course I'm white
URAPNIS: Oh, come on.If someone is offended, it's their choice.This is complete and utter nonsense.It's just a farking word.
