Black and Tan ice cream

This really is quiet funny. Seemingly the Ben and Jerry's ice cream Black and tan "debacle" has reached the mainstream press in America. Ben & Jerry's sorry for Irish "Black & Tan" upset

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's have apologized for causing offence by calling a new flavor "Black & Tan" -- the nickname of a notoriously violent British militia that operated during Ireland's war of independence.

"I can't believe that Ben & Jerry's would be so insensitive to call an ice cream such a name and to launch it as a celebration of Irishness ... it's an insult!" wrote one blogger on

Pff, nobody in Ireland gives a crap really.
I suppose it's like Ben and Jerry's making a 'Bloody Mary' flavoured ice-cream in Britain.
Bloody Mary was a psycho murderous bitch queen before she was a delicious alcoholic beverage.

Anyway, if you're going to get offended by this you really should get started with licking those newspaper shreds.
That cocoon you'll need to hide away your life in isn't going to magically make itself.
