The ice cream truck in my neighborhood plays "Jesse James".

It's odd. Unless you start singing along. THEN it becomes educational.

Mine plays "Turkey In The Straw" and "The Entertainer". Some day I am going to shoot him.

If it's the same "Jesse James" I'm thinking of, and assuming that no lyrics are sung, how do you know it's not Woody's "Jesus Christ"?

There's something odd there!

Our ice cream man was found dead under a ton of hundreds and thousands sprinkles.




The police say he topped himself.

Ice cream vans are one of the last sources of wholly unrelated retailing accompaniment motifs. Roll out the barrel? No doubt a sink estate is echoing to chimed phrases from Gotterdammerung and supplying Nibelungen 99s with a crack chaser as we speak.

In Middlewich the current favourite is the 'Wheels Cha Cha', made famous by a man who appeared on TV rippling his muscles in time to the music.
That was in the days when we used to have proper entertainment on the telly.
In my day....etc.....etc......

I remember him Dave on Opportunity Knocks. Hughie Green made great play of the fact he'd been sprayed gold and if the toxic sheen were not washed off immediately the producer cut the scene, presumably by men with jet washes and fallout attire, the muscle man would expire in a paroxism of gilten ripples.
A bit weird for my taste, like watching the alimentary canal of an earthworm in a vaguely gay context, but perhaps a cultural totem of sorts.

Nobody ever lost a fortune underestimating the taste of the public.

I remember seeing the muscle rippler along with Hughie Green in pantomime of all things.
My father, who had studied anatomy at art school was impressed that he could operate the three muscles in the leg above the kneecap independantly. Apparently in most people they are fused together.

Strange wht things stick in your mind.

Our Ice Cream van has two tunes. "Cocaine" and "Sex and Drugs and Rock N Roll". I have always wondered why he is so popular.

There are no ice cream vans around here. Of course, there are no coneheads either.

We have one old, decrepit looking ice cream wagon that looks like Red Skelton drove it in "The Good Humor Man." A weird little old guy drives it. I don't think he really has any ice cream. He's just "chumming" for young folk. He rings his chimes with "Mrs. Robinson." Sique!
