   World Trade Center or World Trade Centre?
   The official name is "Center."  There are other WTCs around the world, so I added some key words.
   The numbers from

World Trade Center bombing--16,400
World Trade Centre bombing--1,240
World Trade Center terrorist attack--8,400
World Trade Centre terrorist attack--681

   I also checked Rec.humor, the group that spread NASA (Need Another Seven Astronauts) and DIANA (Died In A Nasty Accident).  There were some messages about how you can get to the top of the World Trade Center, but that was it.  I don't know if there's a name for it, besides "gallows humor" or "offensive."
