0806 Ikea's strange naming

Bedlinen, bed covers, pillows/cushions: flowers, plants, precious stones; words related to sleep, comfort, and cuddling.

O-kay. With you so far. But is it just me, or is this name just a tad -

um -

well, you know. Unsubtle????? Indelicate?

(Even with the y and the umlaut?)

*cough* well, that one was rather direct, wasn't it? Makes me wish we had an Ikea here - just so that I could browse and see what else is on offer!
Hope you're well,
