Ice cream is for everyone

While I applaud Carlo for bucking multiple conventions with his pink ice cream truck in North London, I do wonder whether – considering his target market – he's chosen the right catch phrase.

If Carlo is truly Venetian, and English is indeed his second language, I worry he's not aware of the other, more sordid pun in:
Often licked ~ Never beaten.
What's more, I worry that he is.

Hmmm. I believe your pal Carlo might be guilty of a little copyright infringement:

Frosty Boy has been with us in NZ and Oz for a donkey's age. Since I was a kid, even. So we're talking the Pleistocene Epoch here. Every teenager (perhaps earlier these days?) goes through a eureka moment of incredulity/hilarity when they suddenly get the double entendre.

I believe the company is still going strong, though I could be wrong about that....

Incidentally, how did you do your "Crumbs In Bed" widget? It's really good, I could do with one of those.

Hope you resume blogging soon.
