A long-shot possibility: is "Mexican shower" derived from "Mexican divorce",
as both are notoriously quick?

PS. Re ethnic slurs on Netherlanders, there is the following (from a folk (?)
song that I learned as "Blow Ye Winds High Ho")

          "The cook was Dutch
           And behaved as such
                For all he fed the crew
           Was a couple of tons
           Of hot cross buns
                All mixed with sugar and glue"
