Offensive drinking?

Is calling a drink 'Irish Carbomb' offensive?

  • Yes! Wonder if they'd like us to call a drink Smoking Twin Towers

  • No... It's a reference to the ingredients. Get a grip. On your glass.

In the US, in some bars they sell a drink called Irish Carbomb, Guiness with Baileys and Jameson, guarranteed to land you flat on your back.

Do you find the name of this drink offensive?

Now where abouts in the list of ingredients (Guinness, Bailys or Jamason's) is any reference to 'car' or 'bomb'?

Irish? Yes, I'll give you that one, just not so sure about the other two. Unless 'carbomb' is a reference to having to phone a codeword to the wife and her cordon of a couple of hundred meters around you when you get home??? :roll:

The drink's title is obviously a shining example of our colonial cousin's side splitting humour and disregard for any form of terrorisum not involved in plots to attack their harmonious shores. It is after all the so called 'land of the free'! :wink:

to be honnest - the only offensive drinking i can think of is either:

A) - Drinking whilst fighting through the enemys position

or

B) - Spilling it.

So does this mean if there were a series of carbomb drinks - each of a different 'nationality' it would be OK?
