|02:01 pm - PUT ON YOUR ICE CREAM EATING HATS, GANG|
This is where I'm gonna be come Tuesday afternoon:
Verizon Jimmy Fund Scooper BowlOkay, who wants in on this fabulous frozen
all-you-can-eat ice-cream festival
June 7-9, 2005
11:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
City Hall Plaza, Boston
$3 Children ages 3-10
FREE for children under 3
orgy-which-doesn't-start-with-an-F-so-there-goes-my-alliteration feeding frenzy?
Would that I could.
You could replace orgy with Feeding Frenzy.
That would imply that we are ICE CREAM LOVIN SHARKS and come to think of it that's not such a bad idea
Canadian children's entertainer Eric Nagler had an album with a song on it called Ice Cream Orgy Time.
It's ice cream orgy time
It used to cost a dime
But now the prices rise
And it's a smaller size
It's from like the early 80s. Little kids sing along.
Why don't they do this on a weekend day? Them what works the 9-5 can't go. And that includes ice-cream-less me!!
However I'm amused that they put a photo of overweight children on the event web page.
Oh my gooses your little meowing kitten is meowing twice in this thread and it goes "meow! meow! meow! meow!" and it's just TOO CUTE!
Anyway. I bet if they did this on a weekend it'd get waaaaaaaaaaay out of hand. A lunch break would do but that's only an hour, innit, and you gotta be in the middle of town for it, right?
Well. There's only one solution. It rhymes with 'cookie' and you play it.

Ever hear of a lunch break?
Hey! I have that day off. Can I meet you there? It sounds awesome beyond belief.
:sigh: and I wish I could have ice cream.
damn cholesterol diet! and I haven't quite gotten used to sugar substitutes yet.
It's not FREE ICE CREAM unless you're a toddler, but UNLIMITED ICE CREAM is still pretty good. Please take pictures.
That's definitely going to raise an absurd amount of money for charity, considering the cost it takes to produce ice cream. And I'll wager someone is getting a nice big slice of commercial pie along with it.
It's been going on for over 20 years now. I remember running into it when I was in 6th grade and our class spent a week on an island in Boston Harbor and we had one day off on the "mainland."
As far as I can see it's an event that has only winners. The Jimmy Fund is happy because they get money. The organizers are happy because I wager they make some bank on it, too. The ice cream people are happy because they get to advertise their wares to an enthusiastic crowd of ice cream lovers (and seriously, nobody loves ice cream more than New Englanders.) And us Bostonians are happy because, hell, we get to eat ice cream!
