The last show of the season, so for the first hour I handed out summer listening assignments and for the second hour said goodbye. I also told the audience about my summer job. Yes for the 12th summer in a row, I’ll be lurking in people’s neighborhoods. Not in a raincoat! In an ice cream truck. Here are some of the treats I’ll be offering this year:

Ice Cream Treats 2022

Johnny Depp/Amber Herd sundae. It doesn’t come in a cone or a cup. It’s just a giant scoop of Chocolate ice cream — But be careful not to dump it in the bed.

Wordle Popsicle — If you can guess the flavor in 6 tries, it’s free!

Something new: The Joe Biden Malarkey Malted  — it’s like his sainted mother always said… You can fool some of the people some of the time and that’s usually sufficient.

I’ll be featuring a huge new Banana Split  — Forty scoops of ice cream and 22 bananas.  It’s Merrick Garland’s favorite which means I bet you’ll never get to the bottom of it.  

Of course I have Rainbow Sherbet in celebration of Pride Month…

You know what absolutely vanished off my shelves this year?  The Baby formula milkshake —  Better luck next year.

Want to get in on the ground floor of a great deal?  Try my Cryptocurrency cone – a bargain at $400.  Of course by 2:00 p.m. it’ll be $1500 — and by 3:30 it’s down to $42 bucks.  Don’t forget: with every crypto cone you get a compete set of the emperor’s new clothes. 

By the way, due to supply chain issues none of the ice cream cones actually come with cones

Last but not least…

A special sundae this year — it’s my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae. If you’re a guy  you can choose any of my 48 flavors. If you’re a woman, you don’t get a choice. So order my Supreme Court Supremacy Sundae and enjoy a trip back to the 18th century!
