Quote from: shiftwork2 on January 13, 2022, 10:28:25 PMI used to call my office sharer a 'midget prick', because he was short and actively and odiously unpleasant and I hated him. Would I now have to refer to him as the mini prick?
Quote from: Blue Jam on January 13, 2022, 07:20:25 PM"jaffa cakes" is another generic, non-copyright term isn't it? Is it offensive to men who are firing blanks?
Quote from: touchingcloth on January 13, 2022, 07:59:33 PMMy Finnish friend says they have some sweets there which are basically called Liquorice N-words, so Great British sweets are all relatively fine.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on January 13, 2022, 08:21:16 PMYou still see tête-de-nègre in France sometimes. A year or so ago I noticed the supermarket ones were called tête au chocolat on the individual packages but the box they were put out from still said tête-de-nègre.

Quote from: buzby on September 14, 2017, 12:48:28 PMI suspect the Teacake name was adopted by Tunnock's as a way of avoiding VAT on confectionery (the foil wrapper actually has 'Tunnock's Chocolate Mallow' printed on it). The company won a tax appeal in 2014 to have it's coconut-covered variant the Snowball also classífied as a cake.Boyd Tunnock, the octogenarian owner of the company (and staunch Tory party supporter and donor) claims to have invented them in 1956 when he returned from National Service in the Army Catering Corps, but they are a copy of the 'moor's head' or 'negroes' kiss' (later renamed 'chocolate kiss' for obvious reasons) chocolate-covered marshmallow confectionery that had been popular around northern Europe since the early 1800s. The leading German brand is Stork's Dickmann's, which have been in production since 1950 (and possibly where Tunnock got the idea from, if he served over there) :

Quote from: Kankurette on January 14, 2022, 12:28:37 PMIsn't there racist confectionary in Spain as well? Some sweets with a cartoon black man on them, and David Silva got into hot water for comparing Benjamin Mendy to the character?
Quote from: Blue Jam on January 14, 2022, 01:23:47 PMHappy New Year buzby :)Is this in any way related to the Dutch character "Zwarte Piet", Santa's blackface-wearing little helper?

Quote from: Kankurette on January 14, 2022, 03:31:26 PMThanks. I'm getting my Silvas mixed up, though at least I'm not confusing my Mendys, since the City one is a rapist and the Chelsea one isn't.That Conguitos thing is vile, as is Black Pete/Zwarte Piet, and of course the Netherlands is full of people whining about wokeness and cancel culture and how dare they take away our traditions. As for Three Kings, I remember Andres Iniesta got into trouble on social media when he posted a picture of him and his mates celebrating Día de los Reyes and one of them was blacked up.

Quote from: Pink Gregory on January 17, 2022, 03:26:34 PMYou know when you see absolute idiots on facebook call this sort of renaming 'a sinister attack on freedom of speech', as one comment Ms. Gregory read out to me; are you ever tempted to just reply, 'you're a cunt, mate', just nothing but spiteful, mean spirited abuse?Just askin'
