    Well, would you like to?

    Would the chimes of Greensleeves and Oranges and Lemons make you happy? Do you feel that this would be giving something 'back to the kids' or would it just be boring and annoying?

    nah, but i might enjoy waiting in the driving seat and looking for kids approaching the window, then driving 20 yards, waiting again and repeating the same stunt. that would be fun.

    I could only do it for a short time, I'd have to stop when I was unable to fit into the van. I love a Mr Whippy :cool:

    I always wondered about mr whippy's sex life. I bet he is in fact the sub, once he has turned off the jingle and hung up his apron.

    Was he dipping into his stash?

    Seriously though, are there any ice cream vans that don't sell smack?

    That's ACE lizzieloo :D

    I hate the ice cream van jingles and to have to listen to that on and off for more than an hour would drive me nuts and the customers that can't make up their minds, nah, stuff that!

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    The ice cream man when I was a kid got a rep for being a paedo, probably wasn't but he had a beard with no moustache and also didn't have a bum so was definitely weird.

    My brother's mate told the careers officer he wanted to be an icecream man and got bollocked for being cheeky.

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    Anyone else (in Brixton area) encountered the van charmer who is often outside the Brixton Water Lane entrance to Brockwell Park?

    What a surly bastard he is! A little while ago he sold us what was (at very best) an imitation, supermarket value range plain Cornetto for about £2.00. This shit was far shitter than how shit I am making it sound I can assure you. Aside from him ripping us off and wearing a dirty white uniform, he also looked at us like child rapists when giving him money for an inferior overpriced product made him move the 3ft over to the freezer to fulfil his chosen role in life.

    I bet he has made more children cry than Fred West :mad:

    The one that comes round our way has 'If You Go Down the Woods Today' & the theme tune from 'Match of the Day as jingles. :cool:

    Can't be much money in it though can there? Especially in the Winter months.

    Funny you should say that, but it has been suggested that the infamous Glasgow 'Ice Cream Wars' were far more about drug dealing than they were about ice cream. And I recall an American contract killer named Robert Pronge, known as 'Mr. Softee', who drove round in an ice cream truck because the freezer usually contained one or more fresh victims, frozen so that when he dumped the bodies they'd thaw out and that would confuse pathologists as to the precise time of death. He passed on the charming concept to fellow hitman Richard 'The Iceman' Kuklinski, who obligingly later killed Pronge after Pronge tried to hire Kuklinski to kill Pronge's wife and child.

    My mate's dad used to be an ice cream van man, he fucking hated it, it was one of those weird tiny vans

    Standing in a hot box with fridges pumping out even more heat while snotty kids stand at your feet having tantrums

    Nah.

    Edit, I said the same 7 years ago :oops:

    I was thinking the other day, that you could make a killing round here with artisanal gelato, mostly sold by the litre. Elderflower and pear; lavender and rosemary; gin and kumquat...

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Been there, done that - gave up as it was impossible to actually make enough £££s. The round was "a fixed route" by the guy who supplied the van, the fixings etc etc ...

    However, some of the specialised ice-creams in tourist places are "unusual" combinations, like I saw some bright blue that claimed to be bubblegum flavour. At least most still provide the "traditional" styles.
    In North Wales, what was a family firm "Cadwalladers" do some nice stuff, unfortuanately their staff, especially off-season, are dire at customer service (which is why they had problems a couple of years ago).
    In Cumbria, Hartley's have a good range and easily outsell the standard fare like cornettos.
