Unwilling to do a lick of work?

Ok, I’m lazy. I’d rather read a book or do some embroidery or watch a re-re-re-re-rerun of Friends or Scrubs than ... (OCD-type pernickety clean freaks look away NOW. You've been warned) ... clean the kitchen, wash the clothes, do the dishes, weed the garden, or any such mind-numbingly boring household work that needs doing way too often for my liking. Hey, I SAID I was lazy.

But, as lazy and indulgence-prone as I am, I still have enough get-up-and-go to lick my own ice-creams – not to mention those of anybody who’ll let me at theirs. It’s part of the charm of ice-cream cones that you hold them yourself and lick away frantically (especially if it’s a hot/windy day) before the melting drips and dribbles of icecream run down your arm. Not that it’s a problem if you DO drip... you then merely go on to licking your arm. Like I said, not a problem.

So how incredibly, unbelievably slothful are the people at whom
this sad invention is aimed? There’s no excuse for not holding your own cone and turning it around as you lick the icecream – unless of course you cant physically manage it.

Otherwise, jeez... let your tongue have that workout, the one that Kitchen Craft seem to think is too much effort!

You don’t want a fat, unfit tongue, do you?

Such lazy people should be banned from eating ice creams if they are so lazy to lick it!!

Inventions like these are for people who don't UNDERSTAND icecreams and lovers of ice-creams. WE want to lick it in from all sides peace and with abandon. Some utterly jobless person has come up with this ...for some alien am sure. Nobody on this planet ought to buy it.

correction: ...from all sides IN peace...

On the beach at Atlantic city, vendors carrying heavy chests of ice cream used to cry out..." give your tongue a sleigh ride" or "give your chick a lick on a stick".It was just such fun and so refreshing just to see the vendor coming with his pitch...burning there in the sand hoping to become more beautiful for somebody!
