Default The word 'douche'

I see it used in these forums a fair bit and thought I should give a heads up. The word 'douche' is simply the French word for 'shower'. That is, the thing that sprays water and you stand under it to wash yourself. In other words, if you call someone a douche intending to insult them, you are not. Now a douche bag, well that is something you use in the douche to wash yourself, like a sponge, not insulting either.
