Heard at the Ice cream parlor

Since the Dairy Queen Blizzard has made it possible to have ANYTHING on ice cream, blending soft serve vanilla with candy, cookies, fruit, and the like- I want to explain something briefly.

Here in the Midwest, Butter Pecan ice cream is as popular as vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and Rocky Road. It's not a vanilla ice cream with pecans on it Blizzard style, but an actual flavor of hard ice cream, sold in tub, that is a rich and creamy buttery vanilla ice cream with a hint of pecan taste as well as having HUGE chunks of pecans liberally throughout the container. Butter Pecan is such a popular flavor that here in the Midwest it's sold in gallon and half gallon containers in grocery stores like Marsh, IGA and Kroger. It's probably the most commonly sold flavor we sell at the parlor.

So all that being said, a guy comes in the ice cream parlor and orders a waffle cone with 2 dips of butter pecan ice cream. "And I want that with no pecans." I stare at him and then tell him the pecans are in the ice cream. And then he responds to me with:

"Well, duh, I know that. Just dip around them."

What a stupid fucker.

OMG! And they make jokes about dumb blonds. That's like trying to pick the chocolate chips out of the cookies after they are mixed in.

Patti- ack- pun alert! LOL! And I looked at him, looked at the dining room full of 27 other people patiently waiting their turns for ice cream dessert, and just scooped his butter pecan like normal and told him he could "just eat around the pecans."

Curley- I KNOW! This guy was just a waste of my time yesterday- I swear. and he wasn't blond- he was bald. Go figure!
