What's Wrong With 'Sex Fruit'?

From the AP wire/Yahoo! News:
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A family court judge in New Zealand has had enough with parents giving their children bizarre names here, and did something about it.

Just ask Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. He had her renamed.
I don't see many problems with Talula, perhaps the problem arose due to the 'does the hula' part. It sounds more like an instructional video than a name. Using verbs as middle names is inventive. At least we know the girl's parents took something from school. They can form simple sentences. Subject. Verb. Object.

The story continues saying the judge listed other odd names that were prohibited. I wonder if the recent celeb baby names were on the list. Among some of the nixed names were: Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin take note; naming your kids after food = not cool.
  • Everyone knows Detroit sucks.
  • I'll take a guess that Keenan and Lucy were the parents.
  • Frankly, I see no problem with Sex Fruit. I was planning on attaching that moniker to my first born.
According to the story, allowed names include "Number 16 Bus Shelter" (place of conception?) and "Violence."
