I really wish we were allowed to shoot ice cream truck drivers here in Philly.

Legend says that, once in a Blue Moon, a Superman visits Gloversville in an effort to get the ice cream rivals to chill out. But of course the situation soon swirls around 180 degrees, as the cycle begins again. The ripple effect is felt throughout the Gloversville area.

Why would you buy ice cream from a stranger in a truck in 2013?
Go to the damn store.

What if I told you...

The stores get their ice cream from a stranger in a truck

Didn't we just hear about this?

I liked my headline better, but had a less informative article.  My sister used to live in Gloversille.  It pretty much sucks, and I'm sure there's a drug problem in the city.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Begoggle: Why would you buy ice cream from a stranger in a truck in 2013?
Go to the damn store.

That's assuming that the truck driver is new to the store, or the receiving store employee is new to the store, and you know what they say when you assume.

I used to hunt in that area. It's a strange place. I got yelled at for leaving too large a tip at a bar.

That was one of my favorite books when I was little! Exactly what the headline reminded me of, too.

Is it permissible to shoot at ice cream trucks with a BB gun? Aiming for the loudspeaker at least?

The ice cream truck in my mom's neighborhood used to blast hardcore gangster rap, so I can kinda see this happening.

Hmm... there is something called a "Sno Cone Joe Franchise". Seems like you could figure out how to be an ice cream man on your own. The valuable training info: Day 1: keep product cold. Day 2. Making change for a 20. Day 3: When roughing up Mr Ding-a-Ling, be sure to be covert.

I live in Gloversville.

Please help me. I want to leave but there's a 3-scoop minimum to get across the town line.

When I was a kid the original Sno Cone Joe was the only game in town, it saddens me to see his frosty name besmirched like a scoop of vanilla that's fallen on a dirty sidewalk.

Or, it could've been the Shorewood, WI coppers:

While visiting my dad for Father's Day about 10 years ago, we were sitting outside at his house at a pretty major but residential intersection.  An ice cream truck rolls down the street, followed closely by a squad.  I say to my dad, "He's not gonna pull him ov..." [lights, siren]

Guy gets pulled over and over the next 30-45 minutes we watch this guy get advised of his Miranda rights, another squad comes for backup, driver gets hauled off and the ice cream truck gets towed.  I have no idea why he was pulled over.  Maybe it was the electronic ice cream truck music on the loudspeakers?  Maybe he didn't have the proper permits to sell in Shorewood?  Maybe there was something wrong with the truck and the driver had an outstanding warrant?

We still talk/joke about it.

/as much as I love ice cream and custard, it makes me shiat worse than if I drink tap beer from a joint with dirty lines.

///fewer treats, fewer violent bowel movements

It will get out of control. It will get out of control and we will be lucky to live through it.

Despite his reputation, the thing about Mr. Softee is he won't be intimidated.

You can't break him, only bend him.

I will have Gloversville back for myself! He who controls the ice cream controls the universe and what Malatino did not tell you is we have control of someone who is very close, very close, to Duke Leto! This person, this traitor, will be worth more to us than ten legions of Sardaukar!

the headline on the actual article is farking awesome:

Right out of a King Of The Hill episode only replace ice cream trucks with lunch trucks.

IIRC the mafia was trying to muscle in on the Good Humor man back in the day. The mob did one mistake they burnt some Good Humor trucks and that set off a shiatstorm, the feds got involved some arrests and Good Humor sold on.

You may be lactose intolerant. Same thing was happening to me about 15 years ago. Tried lactase pills on a hunch, and I can now have ice cream again!
