Ice-cream

Geoff’s not here right now. The Tuesday ION, along with your precious gastronomic flavours, are now mine to command! And today, I’m wielding the full power of the Infinity Ice Cream gauntlet!

It’s a hot day, and honestly, nothing hits the spot like ice cream. Maybe you’re broke and you can only afford the slurry scraped out of drums and sold at Pick ‘n Pay. Maybe you’re a rich boy who only dines on premium Häagen-Dazs, or maybe you’re a sucker for a mom and pop shop down the road that makes a great cone of Pistachio frozen cream.

Maybe you make your own ice cream, because you’d sooner saw your legs off than eat something bought in a store. Look, the lesson here is that on a hot day, nothing beats ice cream. It’s the best situational climate food/snack/treat, of all time.

In Other News: Konami is sorry about those Metal Gear Online problems, the Lowriders are here, Mario helped boost Wii U sales now way brah how and Lightning Returns yet a-freakin-gain.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I just saw a guy driving with an ice cream and I thought to myself “bloody Sundae drivers”.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
