Did you know the word "douche" is a synonym for flush?

If I seriously thought I could get a marketing guy up on stage saying the word "douche" I would certainly name my current project douche.

...but that is asking too much of the universe.

Well, in Russian it means shower. And i'm pretty certain that they borrowed the word from the French, back in imperial era ;)

Indeed, in distributed concurrent systems it's important to periodally perform a cache douche.

Be sure that you call any containers in it bags to maximise the humour potential. :)
