Introducing my sister as Ebony to people who haven't met her and dont know she is my sister. I am white, and she is...not. Actually we have many politically incorrect stories about our respective colours.

i was drunk at dinner at an expensive restaurant. i was with my then boyfriend, and we were with a straight couple. another gay couple sat down at the table next to us. unintentionally, and unaware of the volume of my voice, i announced the fact that there was another gay couple in the restaurant to my table, and included the fact that they looked very much like members of a gay subculture that are known as "bears," or sometimes "leather bears."

apparently the whole restaurant heard, and the poor men got up and moved to another table.

i felt *terribly* about it.

My sister and I call ourselves a walking ad for United Colours of Benetton. Anyone remember that ad which was banned, it featured an blonde kid made to like like an angel and a dark skinned kid who's hair was twisted into horns? It created a huge uproar and I guess it isn't funny, but even when we were younger mum would have photos of us in the same sundress in different colours or something and we'd call ourselves twins and shit. We've never noticed how uncomfortable it makes others. But years of people ignoring my sister to ask me 'why is she different?' have changed how I look at this colour business.

wearing a Kerry button to Mass at my Catholic church?

I'm a wimp and I try not to offend people (at least publicly ) so that's all I can think of right now

My hometown is in Michigan, but our twin city is in Wisconsin. That means you see just as many cars with Michigan plates as Wisconsin plates. As a joke, I would refer to people in cars with Wisconsin plates as foreigners. Back when we were in high school, my best friend and I were driving around town, and a Wisconsin car cut us off. When we were able to pass them, I screamed, "Damn foreigners!" Well, it was summertime...so our windows were rolled down...and their windows were rolled down...and the people in the car were Hispanic.

Procrastination, especially when it comes to put things where they go. I'm a really disorganized person.

When me and my close friends are together we basically can't open our mouths without saying something horribly offensive , we have a very strange sense of humor that i think few people would find funny.

I've done so many un-pc things that the question has stumped me for I know not where to begin.
