Also, I've always thought that some random action/spy movie should have a scene where the hero is disguised as a bartender, and when a villain comes in and orders a drink, and then the hero says, "How about a Molotov Cocktail?" and the villain says "Sure!" and then the hero throws one in his face.

This would be entirely dependent on the villain having no clue what a Molotov cocktail is. I...hrrmm. :(

Have you ever wondered how the Molotov cocktail got its name? I won't tell you, you'll need to look it up fer yerself, yup!

Oh, what the heck:

Named and made famous by Finns in the Winter War (1939-1940). Name comes from the Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov who claimed in a radio broadcast that the Soviet airplanes dropped food to Finland during the war (instead they actually dropped RRAB-3 clusterbombs which the Finns comically named Molotov's bread baskets.) The Finns then decided to name the bottle they effectively used against Soviet tanks 'Molotov Cocktail' to go with "the food".
