Sunday Roast: National Ice Cream Day



According to a thing I saw on facebook, today is National Ice Cream Day.  Okay!

Could be worse — it could be National Haggis Day.  That’s the day only our Briseadh na Faire is happy.  😉

This is our daily open thread — What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

  1. Could be worse — it could be National Haggis Day. That’s the day only our Briseadh na Faire is happy.

    Not true. I’ve had haggis on several occasions. It’s not bad at all.

    Lutefisk, however, is not something I’d ever care to try.

      • Three – I luv me the ‘wee timourous beastie’ … 🙂 …. you can buy it from someone in Oregon now – my attempts to smuggle it in using my father as a mule have failed many times.

    • In my MN home town, Lutefisk was a Christmas tradition. That’s the main reason I moved out of MN as soon as I was old enough to do so.

      Lutefisk back in those days was sold by the local grocery store where, during the day, the fish were out front on a wooden rack on the sidewalk. My dad explained that Norwegians liked it best after the dogs had had a few days to “season” it.

  2. Fox News Sunday led off with their condemnation of Donald Trump’s remarks about John McCain yesterday. This was the zinger of that discussion.

    Michael Needham, CEO, Heritage Action America: The problem isn’t Donald Trump running as a third party. The problem is that the Republican voters right now are saying, you know what, if the Republican Party is not going to do what they sent them to task, may be I’ll stay home and watch football. Maybe I’ll go to a third, but not necessarily Donald Trump, it would be somebody more serious. But Republican voters are fed up with an intellectually bankrupt and soulless party, and that’s something the party leaders have to do something about.

    Immediately after this comment, Wallace hustled off to a commercial. I’m surprised it made it into the transcript.

    • IOW, a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for None of the Above, which I’ve been saying since he soared to second in the polls. BTW, Bush polls around 18% and Trump around 12%. It;s not like it’s Bush at 42%, Trump at 39% and everyone else in the last 19%. Nobody in the Republican field has anything close to a majority. They are hyping trump for no good reason. (There are reasons, but they’re not good.) Trump will win nothing but scorn.

      • The banality of the American political process – its a reality show, a sham, a joke…. a country in a continuous game show, has lost the ability to do anything meaningful for itself or in the world.

    • “There was this kid I grew up with; he was younger than me. Sorta looked up to me, you know. We did our first work together, worked our way out of the street. Things were good, we made the most of it. During Prohibition, we ran molasses into Canada… made a fortune, your father, too. As much as anyone, I loved him and trusted him. Later on he had an idea to build a city out of a desert stop-over for GI’s on the way to the West Coast. That kid’s name was Moe Greene, and the city he invented was Las Vegas. This was a great man, a man of vision and guts. And there isn’t even a plaque, or a signpost or a statue of him in that town!”

  3. The Florida folk are quite fortunate to see these daily:

  4. As a child black licorice ice cream and orange sherbert in a cone!
    Now it’s sugar-free popsicles.

      • There’s an app for that

        I was entranced with maps, world globes and atlases as a grammar school student.
        (even as an adult I still have my map collection, thank you National Geo, and pull them out to see how the world has changed)

  5. Well, Illya Kuryakin just unlocked a door with a tuning fork…beating The Doctor by two years.

        • David McCallum…. been a great character actor for many years. Great Escape I think? , 633 Squadron, Colditz, Sapphire and Steel and latterly NCIS and Ducky….

          • According to his IMDB page he’s been in NCIS since 2003, appearing in 281 episodes. I had no idea.

            • Yup, he has managed to maintain his youthful looks for long time. Like Walter Koenig.

    • I just add temp and humidity together, and if the sum is over 130, it’s way too hot.
