I took the afternoon off from work and went down to the Timebomb Warehouse to visit a few friends Gman (gmanandrizk.com), Bob Kronbauer (Vancouverisawesome.com and clubmumble.com), Randy Laybourne (lookforwardtothepast.com) and Jeff Hamada (booooooom.com) and Jennilee (www.jennileemarigomen.com). I am not trying to drop names here but these guys are doing some fantastic stuff and you should really check them out.

On this sunny Friday Gman was hosting a BBQ and later gave us a tour of his facility. When the grill and tables were being packed up, we suddenly heard the familiar sound of the ice cream truck. Staff quickly ran to the truck and Gman treated us all to ice cream (thanks G). I ordered a Spiderman bar (it was a poor replication of the web slinger) and the other highlight was the Sponge Bob Square Pants ice cream bar (this replication was better). The bubble gum on the eyes was the deciding factor for my decision. I seemed to be the only one that ended up with ice cream on my hands, I think it was because of my inability to be able to bite ice cream that made me the slowest eater.

I asked the ice cream lady about the music and she said she has four different sounds that she can pick from. We got to hear them all, they all suck, I would go crazy.

Anyone remember the ice cream skit by Eddie Murphy in Delirious?

ice cream trucks have really lost their sense of style. now they're just creepy vans with peeling stickers on them. vancouver slop should open up their own ice cream truck with serious style!

Mr. Cool is trying to do just that! Check out some of their fun and funky wrapped vehicles on http://icecreamtruckadvertising.com

It's better with the right client mix... a giant musical cupcake would be cool, for example.

Try and buy an ice cream from Mr. Cool...you'll need a second and third mortgage on your house. Most of the trucks are expensive, not like them though...I guess that's how they pay for their fancy ads that make it look like a courier van.

The Dickie Dee man is cheaper, but doesn't have the blue ghost that I used to buy when I was a kid.
