Ice Cream Thunderdome!

I dare you to try to read this without laughing.

GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — The chilly relationship between rival upstate New York ice cream truck operators got out of hand this season, with Sno Cone Joe trying to chase Mr. Ding-A-Ling out of the market, authorities said Wednesday.

Gloversville police told local media outlets two Sno Cone Joe operators face harassment and stalking charges after heated confrontations last month that included one of them yelling "This is my town!" at a Mr. Ding-A-Ling driver.

The driver told police that Sno Cone Joe owners Joshua Malatino and Amanda Scott followed his truck, playing their music at high volume and trying to lure away customers with promises of free ice cream.

Police said Malatino also called the suburban Albany headquarters of Mr. Ding-A-Ling and said "I own this town!" while claiming Sno Cone Joe controls the frozen treats market in Gloversville, a former manufacturing city about 35 miles northwest of Albany.

Mr. Ding-A-Ling appears to have won this round, but Sno Cone Joe ain't exactly known for bitchin' out after a little shakedown from the law.

Gettin' rough out there. Stay safe, morons.

14 I wonder how ice cream trucks stay in business these days.

True story about EC:


Knowing how children react to ice cream trucks and the siren call of their nursery rhyme jingles, I conditioned my son at a very young age to run away from them. I told him, if he ever hears lthe music he should run inside the house before he is seen by it.

He's 10 now and it still works.

He said pretty much all the guys were felons and mentally ill.

The Glasgow Ice Cream Wars were conflicts in the East End of Glasgow in Scotland in the 1980s between rival ice cream van operators, over lucrative drug distribution territory. The conflicts involved daily violence and intimidation, and led to the deaths by arson of several members of the family of one ice cream van driver and a consequent court case that lasted for 20 years. The conflicts generated widespread public outrage, and earned the Strathclyde Police the nickname the "serious chimes squad" (a pun on Serious Crime Squad) for its perceived failure to address them.

58 When we lived in Chicagoland, the ice cream truck would come around, and none of the parents of the yard apes who hung out at our house ever had any money for their brats, so I was always doling out $ for their kids.

One day I heard the truck coming down the street (with the creepy music) and ran out with a handful of $$$ for the kids, and heard the crazy-eyed driver mutter, "bunch of little shits."


There was a part of me that agreed with him (with the exception of D'oh Boy, of course).

Back then, the driver rang a bell. I don't remember if he pulled a cord or pressed a button. The point is, he controlled it.

Nowadays ice cream trucks play nonstop recorded electronic tunes as they go by. Wouldn't the drivers go a little crazy being forced to listen to that over and over again all day?

Just make sure you only issue those to the teetotaler Moron/ettes, or they won't make it to the front line.

201 The ice cream flame war appears to have fizzled. Whose bright idea was it to mix ice and fire?

You can buy them with electric motors nowadays. Not nearly as nice asthe gas powered one I made.

*pats self on back*


Motors? Gas powered? What the hell!!

I made ice cream the old fashioned way. I went to Denny's...ordered a glass of ice water, drank the water, added the entire shaker of salt to the left over ice, dropped in a couple of those half-n-half coffee creamer packets, and shook vigorously.

Kids these days. You have it too easy.

203 Ok, just getting back now after a walk with the dogs....

You people who think I'm Hitler for not letting my son run to he ice cream truck need to think about exactly what kind of conditioning is going with the kids who do. A kid that is trained to turn to and run toward a shiny object or a musical van is just one waffle cone away from being duped and kidnapped by a child molester. My son is not going to be fooled by a child raper with candy, toys, or anything else. He knows to stay away from strangers with ice cream.

Besides, I have plenty of ice cream in the fridge for him already. I don't deprive him of the nicer treats of childhood. I just would rather be the one giving to him. That way, I control the portion size too.

204 I believe that a version of this was an episode of "The King of Queens."

205 Control is always good. Because you know you're going to lose some as time goes by. The more you start with, the more you end up with.

Wow.
This is a surprise as I thought all of Gloversville was on public assistance.
We own property in the Adirondacks about 15 minutes west of Gloversville..once the center of glove manufacturing in the area. Until glovesfell out of fashion in 1959.
Result: Just about every employer closed and everyone who was smart left Gloversville.
These guys are pretty typical for the area.
We oftenfeel melancholy when we drive through town to get to Wal-Mart as we pass old historic homes that already needed paint and new roofs 20 years ago (with the exception of the houses on Kingsboro Ave), but the most frustrating is that it is an absolute nightmare to find tradesmen and contractors worth a damn.

209 Is Tommy Vercetti involved in this? It sounds like something from GTA:Vice City.

210 I'm sorely disappointed in you Morons. Nobody brought up Van Halen's "Ice Cream Man" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAxOuud9zko)

That's "Slo-Cone Joe". Common mistake.
