So this doesn't appall me the way that DQ's chocolate-vanilla "MooLatte" appalled me a few years ago -- that was an example of a U.S. company failing at *American* cultural sensitivity. Failing to appreciate another country's cultural sore points? That's a tried-and-true national tradition.

But oh! These shoes. To the Irish. "Celebrating Irish Culture." On St. Paddy's Day.

I haven't stopped laughing about it. I mean, I guess I could be offended -- my family has its horror stories about the B&Ts, whose doesn't -- but I find the epic scope of Nike's MARKETING FAIL simply hilarious.
