Why would they name something "mustard". That's kind of offensive. No wonder children grow up to be cursers?
They start cursing from the day that they can say "mustard".
I just talked to my man Jesus, and he says that we should call it "rollasaka".

The word "mustard" comes from the way this condiment was made. Romans would take the seeds of the plant later called mustard, grind them to a mush, and add to this ground-up paste fresh wine, which was called (in Latin) "mustum." It has nothing to do with cursing or offensiveness unless you find the concept of must, the juice of fresh fruit (especially grapes, hence the connection to wine), in some way offensive. Are you think of the similarity of "mustard" to "basta rd? The two are not etymologically connected.

What? Mustard is a plant from which a condiment is made.

You need to research some word origins. You would find some interesting facts of how things became named. Somebody didn't just dream up the word mustard. It has a reason.

Why would that be offensive?
It has nothing to do with bad language.
