In the United States there is a drink called, the Irish Car Bomb. I've often wondered, is this offensive to Irish people? I mean obviously Car Bombs were a terrible occurrence at one time. I feel like it would be as untasteful as the Irish having a drink called "The Twin Towers Drop" or something. But maybe it isn't offensive, so that's why am asking. Other people could contribute to this thread, by sharing things that perhaps your own culture, ethnicity, sub - culture etc. find offensive that maybe other people don't really know about. I often wonder if British people realize that Americans don't really like to be referred to as "Yanks" and if so, if they really care?
