Default May I ask a daft question?

Well I'm going to anyway

Why Furball?

Is it some sort of US Military saying, description or joke?

Just curious

A couple of reasons:
1. (see the second bullet point) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furball
2. I like cats
3. I wanted a name people would remember

The name sure is catchy. Of all the places I shop Furball is the only one I NEVER forget the name.
