That’s right – the ice cream truck is a summertime menace. I may have written about ice cream truck music – twice – but the early summer ice cream truck season is causing more grief than delight in the media:
- do you want a shot of cheap bourbon with that heavenly hash?
- a lot of people have problems with the ice cream jingle – at 10 pm
- the Good Humor man has returned to New York – and is fighting a turf war.
Most importantly – I did not realize that ice cream trucks needed to bring in foreign workers to make the business cost-effective. Which is why the Russian white slavery charges in Kansas City were so startling.
Finally, Eddie Murphy reminds us how we would mindlessly chase ice cream trucks down the street.
