In New York, multitasking on the job is usually encouraged but when cops found marajahookie and "sugar" in an ice cream truck in Long Island yesterday, well, I guess they felt differently.
Yes, yet another popsicle pusher was arrested due to drugs. Sadly, the only thing surprising about this arrest was that the guy wasn't selling. He was buying.
I'm pretty sure I know why he was seeking solace in mood altering substances. The poor guy had to listen to that blasted ice cream music all day! A person just might need a little somethin' somethin' to numb the pain of hearing Pop Goes the Weasel for the 500th time.
Or could it be that ice cream truck drivers think the cops can't see them because they are hidden behind a throng of screaming children? Let's see what recent history teaches us...
Some words of advice for people considering any of the activities described above:
- In Westbury, NY, a man in an ice cream van was arrested for delivering the coco loco to a damsel in distress.
- In July, a pair of rocket scientists in Kansas City offered a neighborhood dad a bong hit.
- Later this month, un bon vivant will appear in court in Green Bay, WI. The charge? Selling crack from his truck.
- You will probably get caught and when you do, you'll get more time in jail for having illegal drugs near kids.
- Ice cream heals most wounds.
- The concept of selling dope from your ice mobile so cliche it was the "plot" of a Cheech and Chong movie.
