Multiculturalism

I have an Irish colleague. Earlier this week he was wearing a rugby jersey emblazoned with the advertisement of a restaurant called Paddy O'Shea's. I said to him, "I feel like 'Paddy O'Shea's' is such a stereotypical name that if I had suggested we name our Irish pub that, you would have been offended."

He said, "That's right; that's our term for it. You can't use that."

I said, "It would be like calling an American restaurant Porn McCheeseburger's."

He said, "Or Gun McCowboy's."

I said, "I'm offended, but I want to eat there."
