Raising a pint to political correctness

Ben & Jerry’s wins the “Politically Correct Flub of the Week” award for apologizing for naming an ice cream flavor “Black & Tan”. If this wasn’t so totally unbelievable, I normally would let it go, but:

Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s has apologized to America’s Irish population after naming a new flavour Black & Tan.

Ben & Jerry’s said the new flavour, available only in the United States, is based on an ale and stout drink of the same name.

But it is also the name given to a British force that operated during Ireland’s war of independence.

“Any reference on our part to the British Army unit was absolutely unintentional and no ill-will was ever intended,” said a Ben & Jerry’s spokesman. “Ben & Jerry’s was built on the philosophies of peace and love.”

No word on when B&J will apologize to America’s Orangemen population for insulting the memory of the brave boys who tried to keep the Empire together by apologizing to a rabble of terror-loving drunken Micks.

That was a joke, by the way.
