How do you make an Irish Car Bomb?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Bartending interview

Advice
A tummy filled with Guinness, Irish cream and whiskey is undoubtedly a bomb waiting to go off! So how do tenderly prepare this shot in a way that makes the party chant for more?

Basic answer example
"When making an Irish Car Bomb, I start with the shot. First, I pour the whiskey. Second I carefully layer the Irish cream on top. Then, I pour a stout glass about half full of Guinness. Then, bombs away!"
Entry Level answer example
"Irish Car Bombs are tough to make, and I am still working on my layering technique. I understand that to make one; I need to layer the Irish cream on top of the whiskey in a shot glass. The patron then drops the shot into a stout glass of Guinness."
Experienced answer example
"I think these shots are the only way that I kept warm while living in Canada! The name of this shot is controversial, so I do warn others not to order these everywhere you go...especially Ireland! This shot is simple to make but packs a hard punch. First, I pour a stout glass with Guinness, about half full. While the foam is settling on the Guinness, I will pour a half shot of Bailey's Irish Cream, then layer a half shot of Canadian whiskey over the top."
