Dallas newspaper calls for death to ice cream trucks5/21/2012
The Dallas Morning News has declared all-out war on ice cream vendors, screaming about trucks who rudely announce their presence "through loudspeakers blaring cheap electronic music like "Turkey in the Straw" or "The Entertainer." The editorial accuses frozen treat purveyors of destroying the peace and turning quiet settings "into something more like the slot machine floor at a Las Vegas casino." The alt-weekly Dallas Observer took notice of the paper's rant and sassily blogged: "I say let's beat the s*** out of those ice cream bastards ... I think we as citizens should wade in there with baseball bats and broken beer bottles, drag them out of their damn cheap vans and beat them down bad."
