IKEA furniture names are not just random letters, but random sex acts.

Apparently, IKEA—everyone’s favorite place to buy quirky furniture and Swedish meatballs—is hiring Thai translators to make sure that their products are interpreted correctly, after a bed named “Redalen” holds dual meaning for a crude sex act in Thailand.

The United States IKEA chains better watch what they say, too. I think this swinging door was coming on to me when I recently visited.

Also, I just want to remind the conservative country of Thailand that its capital city is named Bangkok. That is all.
