I’ve never heard of a pink taco

But some citizens of Scottsdale, Arizona have. And they don’t want a second restaurant by that name--the original is in Las Vegas--opening up in their city.
Nearly half a dozen people in the upscale city recently expressed their objection to the name, claiming it’s a derogatory slang term for a portion of the female anatomy.
In late April, the city received four e-mails, three of which bore no names, objecting to the restaurant’s name.
One of those e-mails stated: “The City of Scottsdale has a very fine reputation around the world. Let’s keep the standards high. Let’s let what plays in Vegas stay in Vegas.”
