Pillow fights might take a turn for the twisted with the unfortunate name of one of IKEA’s pillows, “Gosa Raps,” which translated to English in Google Translator means “cuddle rape.” A customer who put the pillow’s name in Google translator then posted the shocking results on reddit, reports the Daily Mail.

Unwanted sexual advances aren’t the only thing you need to fear from your bedding, as another pillow, Skarblad, translates to “cut blade,” although it is supposed to be named after a flower. There are a number of other comic names for items, including the “gubbrora” spatula, which translates to “old man touch.”

IKEA was started in 1943 in Sweden and now has locations across the world.
