If only there was something to improve their humor -- enough so that it would be much better than bad humor.

As I find ice cream trucks creepy as hell I support this measure.

Those farking jingles are annoying as fark though, you have to admit.

I HATE those damn things. I sleep in the daytime and work at night, and that damn truck always knows exactly when I'm dozing off to start blaring Turkey in the Straw and then when I finally do get back to sleep that song haunts my dreams.

Ice cream trucks are evil.

THIS. Wouldn't be so bad if the truck would just drive on, but when they constantly circle the block it's enough to make your brain bleed.

Somebody who drives around all day listening to the same damn song on repeat while luring children to their van with promises of tasty treats? Seems legit.

Let's see...in my suburban SoCal neighborhood way back when, there was the white Good Humor truck with the tinkly music, the pink-and-white- striped Dipsy Doodle truck with the rotating clown head on top (and more tinkly music), and the light green truck that played the Sinbad the Sailor cartoon themead nauseum. The Good Humor guy sold Dreamsicles and Creamsicles, the Dipsy Doodle guy sold doubleheader cones that had both chocolate and vanilla ice cream, and the green truck guy sold Buried Treasure, Bomb Pops, orange push-ups, psychedelic gum, and baseball cards.

/damn, I'm old

Relax, man.

Ice cream makes people happy.

Who are you to want to limit people being happy at your expense needlessly?

Holy shiat yes they are. There is one that occasionally drove through my old neighborhood. 30 minutes of blaring that annoying music over and over and over and over 15 seconds at a time. How the driver of the truck didn't attempt suicide on a weekly basis blows my mind.

Why?

Because you are 'damaged'?

Grow into ice cream, man.

It's delicious.

Not every truck is a perp.

God damn you cranky bastards. I hate noise, but an Ice Cream truck blaring music is what summer is all about.

The real crime here is the prices. $2.50 for an ice cream cone

I still remember the ghetto ice cream truck cruising the University Cabanas of Memphis, with half the back sawed off for some reason.

As I recall, a Dipsy Doodle doubleheader cone cost a quarter back in 1970.

P.S. Being poor is colored only by money, currently...

P.P.S. You have the power to make a difference: just give a crap about the world outside your experience more than you care about amassing wealth. There is a difference. And I won't make anyone walk anywhere they can't comfortably walk... ;)

Well, I suppose if the driver is growing into some Ice Cream, he won't be attempting to grow into children.

When I first moved to a neighborhood that attracted ice cream trucks, I thought it was charming. There was an ice cream truck that drove past once every day or two, playing a calliope sort of melody that wasn't too loud. I thought it was sweet. A year passed, and I had a baby, and a new ice cream truck moved into the neighborhood. This one always managed to arrive right at naptime, and it would park directly outside my home for up to ten minutes at a time. It had a loudspeaker on it, which it used to broadcast a tinny version of "Turkey in the Straw" over and over and over again at a volume loud enough to wake the dead. Every day, for months.

If I never see another ice cream truck outside my house, it'll be too soon.
 
2012-07-25 09:26:13 PM
they're cutting each others brake cables in NY. That's some rough bidness, ice cream trucking is
 
2012-07-25 09:26:47 PM
I can see trying to weed out the cheapo "Good Humor" trucks that sell the same damn things you can buy at 7-11.

These guys had the soft-serve ice cream. The good stuff. Those uptight WASPS could use a little Mister Softee to relieve some of their tension.

Ugly.

I'm not saying perps don't inhabit ice cream trucks, but I might be saying what you said is way beyond joking, searchable?

The one in our neighborhood has a music loop that stops every couple minutes and goes "Hello!? Hello?!?" in an incredibly creepy voice that isn't quite a child's and isn't quite an adult's. How the driver/owner thinks that this doesn't scare folks away is beyond me.

After witnessing the Gobbledy Gooker, you will no longer be able to defend Turkey in the Straw.

It's actually kinda interesting. I didn't know they didn't have licensed routes. Sort of an honor code as to who rides what routes and then it gets ugly when people break the unspoken rules
