    “Chichis” is slang for titties.

    I always loved Titties, their seafood enchiladas were the bomb.

    I’ve had some good lunch buffets there.

    OK, so my first post wasn’t taken seriously?

    Don’t feel bad, Virgin posts to the message board by someone who’s username is directly associated with the title of the thread are never taken seriously.

    Hey take it easy with the innuendo, bro. We know what you meant by “virgin”. Frankly, I’m offended, and thought CU was better than this.

    +1, offended here.

    I am so behind on this (no pun intended). I don’t understand how both “Hooters” and “Balls” can be simultaneously offensive to women. I can see how one could be offensive, but the other one (whichever that is) would be offensive to men . . . right?

    Or maybe both terms are offensive to people, generally, and not a particular gender?

    Maybe I should re-read.

    No, you’re in the right mindframe, unless you go out of your way to find things to be offended about. If you think hard enough, you can find reasons to be offended about nearly anything.

    A great example being people thinking that a meatball restaurant called “Balls”, or simply the word itself, has misogynistic overtones.

    No, you’re in the right mainframe, unless you go out of your way to find things to be offended about. If you think hard enough, you can find reasons to be offended about nearly anything.

    “MAINFRAME”??? She has a legitimate question and your first instinct is to call her a computer!? Women are not computers, they are people. How offensive.

    Exactly! I AM MORE THAN JUST THE CONTENTS OF MY PLUM PURSE!

    Man, this place is getting so much attention based solely on it’s name. Whether you decide to go or not, the name of the restaurant is getting out there and being talked about. Some pretty good marketing if you ask me. I couldn’t care less about the name, but now I’m even more interested in how this place does. :)

    “Balls” is a much better name for a restaurant than “Cray”. But I suppose that’s a pretty low hurdle.

    This is most intelligent post in this entire thread.

    Avoid the balls on a bun at all cost.
