Bomb Your Laundry – Not Iraq

I just a read a footnote to a case that reads, “The combination of detergent and chlorine bleach is called ‘la bomba’ in Puerto Rico.” Clorox Co., Puerty Rico v. Procter & Gamble Commercial Co. 228 F.3d 24 (1st Cir. 2000). The thought of people thinking, “wow, that’s pretty dirty, I’m going to have to drop the bomb on these clothes to get them clean” is quite amusing to me.
Other pleasant bombs include la bomba the pastry and la bamba the song (to some).
For an interesting (less than scientific) cultural study, compare Google’s bomb images with bomba images.
