Mmmmm... Delicious 

Now who wouldn't want to eat a pink taco?

In a city aspiring to be defined by its good taste, a new Mexican restaurant, the Pink Taco, is opening with a name that some find offensive.

Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross was so put off by the name, a slang term for vagina, that she asked its owner to change it.

"I don't appreciate anything that offends more than half the population," Manross said. "But he said no and heard my concern. I really didn't want to see a business with that name opening anywhere here."

Sounding more strip club than cantina, the restaurant isn't coy about the double entendre.

"(The name) came out of a dish (that's on the menu), but it's tongue-in-cheek. It was amusing, catchy," Pink Taco CEO Harry Morton said. "You've got to stand out from the rest of the crowd."

I think this could start a new trend. I can't wait until someone opens a seafood restaurant named "The Bearded Clam". Via Tongue Tied.

I loved the line "but it's tongue-in-cheek"... when the name implies that it's really tongue in something else. ;)

Oh. My. God.

How many stoned teenagers would go to that restaurant and ask for a "pink taco"--wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
