Never heard of it. Ben and Jerry's? I've got to try that! Now that doesn't sound average. Deleriously delicious. I mean it Buckeye, who makes it?!

Now, is that the brand "Laura Secord's" and Superkid the specialty ice cream? Never heard of either. May not have it down here. You know you can ship it packed in dry ice? I'll be waiting!

Rae, I did look her up and am always pleased to hear about valient women in history. What a long arduous walk to warn the British of the surprise attack. I read several versions of her trek. Some pretty fanstastic, but that does happen in history. It's like playing telephone. I saw the statue of her in Ottawa. How proud you must be...but I still want her ice cream!

its so good. and its REAL ice cream. not this "frozen desert" crap. They can call ice cream frozen desert because they save money. in order for it to be called "ice cream" it must contain a certain percentage of real dairy" Check your cartons. Chances are it says frozen desert

She didn't say the bathtub had a drain though. Think of the bathtubs farmers used 100 years ago - no plug and no drain

My other friend asked how strong the bucket was and what it was made of, so he could smash the side of the tub open and tilt it!!! There comes a point where thinking outside the box is just silly.
Good god, what do you friends do? Go to MIT?

If it was 100 years ago, they wouldn't have to drain it. They used the same water over and over until the whole extended family, and maybe the neighbors, had all had a bath.

lol....

I want a do over...where "tip it on its side using high explosives" is an answer

Oh wait, that's not considered normal, is it?

...*sigh* I spent way too much time with the engineers. The correct answer with them always involves explosives.
