I Scream

Back where I'm from-- the tropics of Washington, DC--, Ben and Jerry's Free Cone Day is a celebration of spring. People line up outside wearing t-shirts (remember those?) and frolic with their free ice cream over meadows of newly sprouted flowers. But here in Montreal, neither slushwads nor a high of 4 degrees stopped the crowds at the Maisonneuve branch of Ben and Jerry's. They were letting people ahead of the line if you gave one of their employees a hug; they claimed this was to set a world record for most hugs received in one day. I could not find any such existing record at the Guiness World Records site, so I can only assume that this goal was achieved. My flavor of choice? Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz. Best flavor to eat, most awkward to order.
