I just watched three minutes of Batman & Robin and felt like crying. Who actually thought Batgirl would be a good idea?

Alicia Silverstone, skintight leather. Seemed like a good idea at the time...

Yeah, I remember seeing that a few years ago. I even cut out little blocks from a piece of paper and tried patching them together.

As a way to thank our customers for their support and to celebrate 28 years of scooping the chunkiest, funkiest ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet, Ben & Jerry's scoop shops are giving it away!

Around the world, scoop shops are opening their doors from noon to 8:00 pm, to serve up a free scoop of your favorite flavor (or better yet, a new one you've been wanting to try, like Turtle Soup™, Peanut Butter Swirl or Lemonade Sorbet).

So grab a pal and come on down to have some 'scream on us!

I look forward to this every year! (I work right next to a B&J.) Although, it used to be called Free Scoop Day. :D

There's a half-page ad in Metro today about that promotion as well. And if you bring your paper, you get two free scoops. Unfortunately, my closest B&J is down by Tower Gateway; no way I'm trotting down there just for free icecream.

So I got all excited when Toronto got a B&J's relatively near my place. (One of my best camping memories involves coming out of the Adirondacks from a week long trip where bears got into our food supply and all of us just downing a pint of the Heath Toffee Crunch). And last year after an exam, I decide to walk home via it and treat myself. So I get down to Queen Street and note a lot of people with cones - figure it's just the weather or something. Get there and discover free cone that day, but decided it wasn't worth the line up. Sadly, haven't made it back since.
