Ben and Jerry's --

Over at Blogh an Seanchai, we learn that Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, that bastion of tolerance and understanding, unveiled its "Irish" ice cream on St. Patrick's Day -- after naming it "Black and Tan".
The story is that America's most touchy feely sensitive ice-cream brand named its "Irish" ice cream flavour after a British militia -- comprised of convicts and shell-shocked WWI veterans --which tried to restore "law and order" in Ireland during the Irish War of Independence.
