Is it the one with the wacky Christmas music? He's poaching on Jamal's territory. Not that J would care. He doesn't show up until April at the earliest (I think).

I heard from a pretty

I heard from a pretty reliable source that the money is funneled to Al Queda and other terrorist groups through an account in the Caymens. A decision came down from the top, apparently sent from the border region of Pakistan/ Afaganistan, that all terrorist operatives were to stop creating fake charities that gathered money from oil rich Al Queda sympathizers. Instead, they were ordered to dedicating thier resources to selling ice cream from ice cream trucks to raise the money necesarry to carry out their operations. The plan is to use the 35 cent profit margin on snow cones and rocket pops to carry out a final crushing blow against the West.

I heard it last night too. As well as the screaming and yelling in the street at 2:00 am. And this weekend saw four guys on ATV's blasting down Cumberland running stop signs, weaving around cars. Ah, Spring is in the air!

This was probably one of the funniest things I've read on this site in a long time.

But what Spiral said in response was even funnier.

They're actually Basque Separatists funneling their profits towards terrorist groups seeking an end to Spanish rule. You can find them playing traditional Basque sports such as Jai-Alai under the I-95 overpass once their shift ends. And constructing crude bombs, of course.

Currently, they are involved in a turf war with the Pizza Truck---run by a cabal of Italian Red Brigade loyalists---and the guy selling shirts by the check-cashing place, who answers to the Reverand Sun-Myung Moon and sends all profits to a murky network of North Korean arms dealers.

The Muslims are behind the casino, however. It's all there in their "Quarters for Al-Queda" brochure.

I want to apologize for my

I want to apologize for my earlier post on this thread. It was sarcastic, condescending and judgmental. I did not take others posters concerns with seriosness and did adress them with respectfull debate. The ice cream truck passed by house moments ago and their new offerings justify and validate the concerns expressed on this thread. Some of the new items available are:

The Pinacolada Infatada....$1.25

The Tangerine Mujadeen.....$1.00

Very Berry Binladen Pop....$1.50

Frozen Fatwa Fruit Forsty...$1.25

There really is nothing like the gentle refrain of 2 drunks screaming in the wee hours to give you that warm fuzzy summer feeling.

For those who don't get the joke, "Forsty" is an Arab word meaning "Death to the Infidels".

Spiral, those prices are very reasonable. They could probably bump the prices to raise more cash from the rubes in Fishtown.
