Star-Spangled Ice Cream

I-Hate-the-French Vanilla -- at last, Star-Spangled Ice Cream offers a conservative alternative to Ben & Jerry's. Other flavors are Smaller Governmint, Iraqi Road and Nutty Environmentalist. And 10% of the profits go to charities that support the U.S. Armed Forces! (via)

Nice to see the word "hate" being used on ice cream finally. It must be morning in America again. Wake me up in the afternoon.

this is very creative. i think its ok to support ice cream and still be anti-war.

The Internet: easy access to truly disheartening information.

OK, some of these are not that funny (is there really a difference between the Belgian and the German Chocolate? Is it already time to start dissing John Kerry?), but I can still find humor in a few. My favorites: "Smaller GoverMint" and "Gun Nut."

Isn't donating 10% of profits to the military kinda over the top? It's not like they need any more funding then the $396.1 billion they're getting, right?
posted by elwoodwiles at 10:58 PM on March 18, 2003


Well, on second thought, it seems they will need $100 billion extra this year.

Smaller 'governmint'.

Ah, the Republican = smaller government axiom.

Too bad it's a total fraud.

Yeah, why doesn't "smaller government" ever mean smaller military? Or less corporate handouts? Oh that's right, the hypocrisy of politics.

Hey, its not donating to the defense budget, its donating it to charities for military personnel, which are two separate things. And the later are not always well funded.

Personally, I won't believe this until several hundred gallons of Iraqi Road wind up free at my command for our tasting pleasure.

By gosh! Golly Whiz! So many good names.....Maybe this thread should migrate to Metatalk? We could have a vote on ten best names.

Maybe this ice cream company could donate 50% of it's profits to restore the VA health care benefit committments which the Bush administration is refusing to honour:

Veterans accuse Bush of breaking promise on VA health benefits ''I'm terribly frustrated and extremely angry,'' said retired Air Force Colonel George ''Bud'' Day, a Republican who won the Medal of Honor and was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam with Senator John McCain of Arizona. Day said Bush is violating his oft-repeated campaign pledge to
veterans: ''A promise made is a promise kept.'' "The brave men and women who are currently deployed to far off regions of the world must
be assured the VA health-care system will be there for them when they come home
." (leaders of the DAV, VFW, and the American Legion. warning: 1.5 mb pdf file). They are very mad (DAV letter to Domn Rumsfeld): "More than 1.2 million members of the Disabled American Veterans support paying military retirees the benefits they have earned. They will not be misled into believing otherwise by inane assertions that proper and just compensation of military retirees will cause us to lose the War on Terror." Meanwhile, Vermont legislators are fighting the benefit cutoffs.


........and 50% to 200,000 odd veterans of the first Gulf War who are still sick: "About 161,000 Gulf War veterans are receiving disability payments from the U.S. government. About 209,000 have filed VA claims. "

That's a lot of ice cream to eat.

Ha ha! It's ice cream! With funny names! That disparages people!

If this is what conservatives find amusing, it's no wonder I can't understand them.

How exactly do you donate money to the U.S. military? Do they canvas? Raffles? Donation bins at grocery stores?

Little confused, charities who support our military? or charities supported by our military?

My brother actively on duty, does charity work with the children of the men/woman based on military installations during his time off. One such.

I wrote them and asked if they had any plans on offering cruelty-free soy alternatives for right wing vegans such as myself. I hope they write me back!

I think Britney's Cherry has been marketed for years, contrary to anything Justin Timberlake might say.

Oh, for the days of Strom Thurmond, when chocolate ice cream stayed in the back of the freezer, where it belonged. If Strom had been elected back in '48, we wouldn't have had the ice cream problems we've had all these years, all the miscegenation or "swirling" that goes on nowadays...

How exactly do you donate money to the U.S. military?

Bake sales for B2 bombers, government funds for schools.

Car washes for Star Wars, your FICA dollars for Social Security checks.

Selling coupon books for aircraft carriers, better pay and benefits for our soliders.

Corporate welfare for the military industrial companies be gone! [did the hex work yet?]

Economic Crunch

Best. Liberal. Ice Cream. Flavor. Ever.
posted by Vidiot at 2:00 PM on March 19, 2003


Would any self-respecting conservative pay $76 for a freakin' gallon of ice cream? Would they laugh at the web site? Yes. Could I, a generally slightly liberal guy, laugh at the web site? Yes. Are they better than Metafilter at comming up with ice cream names? Quite possibly.

(Though Economic Crunch and Trent Lott's vanilla chocolate swirl are pretty darn good).

I'm with namespan. I'll stick with local and generic brands, skip the politics, and save about seventy dollars. Although the Deadly Sin ice cream sounds tempting, and Europe has damn good ice cream. Aaw... now I'm hungering for the ice cream I had in Germany.
