Almost anything can sound rude, reesetee. Just put it in the following exchange:"Do you like ____ (e.g. pronking)?""I don't know, you naughty boy, I've never ____ (pronked)."Let's try it with another example."Do you like casu marzu?""I don't know, you naughty boy, I've never casu marzued."
I have one of those lists--but it doesn't sound rude to me. Maybe because I'm thinking of all those lovely gazelles.

Hasn't someone got a list for words that sound rude but aren't and isn't this a delightful candidate?
Yes, pronk and stot. Such fun words. It was the first ever Wordie WOTY.

If I had a Dutch girlfriend, I'd probably be disappointed if her surname wasn't Pronk.
Pronk was a word of the year. If I recall, jennarenn in particular fell in love with it. (But didn't we all?)
