An American couple called the Italian police after they were charged $56 for 3 ice creams and a bottle of water in Rome , Italy. Pftt, that’s nothing. Fifteen years ago we were charged over a $100 for 4 hamburgers in Venice…. and by hamburgers I mean a bun with a slab of meat. Tourists have “sucker” written right across their fanny bags!!!

OK, this is either going to the biggest hit or an epic fail . Häagen-Dazs Japan is about to release vegetable ice cream. Yes, it is true. The first flavours will be Tomato Cherry and Carrot Orange. Hmm, sounds like when they released frozen yoghurt and everyone thought it was good for them because it was “non fat”. I wonder if they will have Brussel Sprouts and Boysenberry?
OMG, an ice cream turf war in England, cool. It’s like the friggin Battle of Tastings!!! OK, here’s the deal, Mr Whippy is the local ice cream vendor (Blackburn) but Mr Yummy is a rival from another area. This incident occurred after Mr Yummy tried to steal Mr Whippy’s customer by offering him a cheaper ice cream. Mr Yummy proceeds to smash Mr Whippy’s window so Mr Whippy rams Mr Yummy’s van. Locals say the two rivals have been at it for ages.
We interrupt this broadcast to make an important announcement….breast milk ice cream is OK to
eat lick. Yes, the London Ice cream parlor has been given the thumbs up to go back to selling their $22 a scoop Baby Gaga breast milk ice cream. Seems health and safety are happy with the milk screening. Now all the ice cream parlor has to worry about is Lady Gaga suing their asses off!
The Moo Bath Time cow #43 was created by Shirley Joyce McMurray and is located at Simmos IceCreamery in Dunsborough. This wasn’t a joyous moment for the Loon as, thanks to a rude staff member who refused to allow us to film the cow because we arrived 5 minutes late, we were force to make a 2 hour journey back the next day. Instead of allowing us to quickly go through a side gate to grab a snap she point blankly refused despite staff still cleaning up and people still leaving the park. She even had the nerve to tell us we had to pay! This incident left us pretty much seething for the rest of the evening and well into the 2 hour drive back the next day. It took us one minute to walk in and grab a snap, one friggin minute! Anywho, I grab myself a delicious mocha and rum & raisin double scoop cone and all was pretty much forgiven.
Shirley Joyce McMurray : The inspiration behind my Moo Bath Time was my kids. I have two kids and they both love water and rainbows.
