"My shit is for adults. How do I talk to a kid, really? What's the one thing kids universally run to? That damn [ice cream] truck...A lot of people may be like, 'Yo, you're challenging your image.' Nah, real niggas know what's real." Ice T

Wow. Something tells me that Ben and Jerry are going to have some kind of "drive by" related accident.

The description for "Wild Thang", Vanilla Ice Cream with Milk Chocolate:

"In Your Face: Yo troopers peep this, knockin' boots is stoopid fresh. But on the esrious tip, you have to rpotect yourself. Boyz don't go anywhere without your jim hat (jimmy cap, shower cap, rain coaT). Girlz, make a positive move. From the git go know the ways to protect yourself. You can always say no. If you have any questions, ask your teacher, parent, or counselor. That's the straight up truth, believe dat. In your face."

Check this out Homies, you need an education, a good education, to blow up. School is the pathway to enlightenment. You'll be droppin' some serious science on your whole posse and help raise us all from mediocrity. Fight the power with the power of knowledge. Live large, grow large, and keep blowing up. You must learn! Word.

Oh Dear God, that hurts my brain.

Yea boyz + girlz, check this out! Using drugs is wack. Don't play yourself out, 'cause drugs'll knock you out and put you out of the game. Stay clean, lean, and mean. If you peep your homie doin' it, tell him to chill than give 'em one of these solid cold chillin' treats. In your face. Word.

Ironically, the ice cream in question is called "knock you out."

Satapher: I wondered if this was legit as well, but it's backed up with news releases from July and August. There is a picture of Ice-T in the July release with the caption, "Suck on this, motherf**ker," which has to be the catchiest ice cream slogan I've ever heard.

And now a blast from the MetaFilter past: We all scream for ice cream.

Are you sure it's posse pops? 'Cause I picture this scenario:

Customer: "Hey, this ice cream tastes like shit!"

Vendor: "You idiot. Turn it over!

That's a lot to ask from a frozen novelty.

Redneck Racist: You know, I've always hated colored people, but this is one tasty fudgesicle. Maybe I need to rethink my value system...

i think this is a good and positive thing -- in a lot of low-income families, children seem to have been taught to distrust governmental authority, so why not have entertainers (who are perceived to have more credibility) try to deliver these same messages?

is it done well? i don't know -- if i were a pre-teen and above i have to imagine i'd think ice cream pops fronted by aging rappers (has Ice T *made* a rap album in forever?) with public service announcements all over them are kinda lame -- i'd probably be making the same jokes people are in this thread.

would kids younger than that even understand what the hell ice t is talking about? i don't know.

anyhow, i like stuff like this, because i've always been an avid reader of cereal boxes.

Nah, he's been too busy with death metal. It's easy to pick out the Ice-T rap in the written lyrics(hearing it in the song is much better though). While he may be all about promoting safe sex and anti-drug, he's still very pro-weaponary. Nevertheless it's a good song.

Wow, Ice-T is one outrageous dude. He's totally in my face.

This homie is waiting for the day they can compete with these great ice cream flavas: octopus, squid, ox-tongue, wasabi, shrimp, eel, cactus, crab, and the ever popular chicken-wing.

It's kind of cool they are targetting neighborhoods that most franchise businesses avoid. If their ingredients are any good (none of that ice milk crap please) these ice creams could be pretty alright.

I wonder if they are thinking the embedded comments will get search engines to index their flashturbated web site.

You know that sharp pain you get when you bite into or swallow a too-cold scoop of ice cream? I guess now you can call it a capitalist migraine.

That's actually a common technique on flash-y sites, for that very reason. I think the flash authoring program generates such html automatically.

Ice T once said in an interview of his sweltering string of appearances in godawful B movies: "I'll do anything that gets me paid..."
