Ok, I saw that the local ice cream van was outside on my street and I was jonesing for some soft ice cream.

I get my foreign ass out there and ask for a soft ice cream vanilla on a cone. The kind you get at Dairy Queen.

The girl, very cute might I add, understands this. She gets the cone, fills it up with ice cream...


...and then she tries to wrap it. She tries to wrap it. In paper.

It's a fukin cone. I'm on my street. I can carry it to my house. Cuz it's a cone. And it fits in my hand.

Why? I don't get it.

1. It's a cone, it fits in my hand.
2. It's my street, I live just 3 houses down. But if I didn't, it's ok, see above.
3. Who the hell wraps ice cream (with a cone), and then eats it off the wrapping paper?

This has happened twice already. Every single time it has blown my mind. First time it happened I thought the guy was high or something, but this chick did it as well.

wut

I can understand fish and chips, I can understand brown sauce, I can accept heavy breakfasts. But what is this shit?

Who the **** says 'ice cream on a cone'?
...Stapling helium to penguins since 1949.

This happens in America (in American Dairy Queens I might add).

So what we can conclude here is that English speaking people are awful at food because they wrap their cones in paper.

Funny, the one ice cream place [gelato, technically] I went to while over there had a very cute girl serving too. Boy, that gelato was great.

I don't think you can assert that ice cream vans fairly make up 'British food culture'.

Also, my ice cream ('99' but they're now like 1.79) has never been wrapped.

Probably because you don't say 'I'd like an ice cream on a cone please'. Serially, if someone said that to me damn right I'd wrap their ice cream, I don't think I'd trust the spastic to know which end to eat if the other one wasn't covered in paper.

This is the last straw; I give up on Canadian people.

This has never happened to me in my whole 20 years of living in England. Is this a Scottish thing or something? Or just one crazy ice cream lady? (never had a lady here either, just a man who pretends to be Italian and calls himself Paco).

This, but on the subject of British Food in general

Fish and chips, tea, and curry.

Unless you're a British student, in which case it's pasta and Carlsberg.

I got a banana shake from a cute girl at the ice cream stand yesterday.

Was she a tranny?

I've never gotten ice cream served from a cute girl :/

When I was a kid all the ice cream truck drivers were stereotypical creepy men drivers in their mid 30s who spelled weird.

Gross and because it is gross.

For a more detailed explanation, British food is just regular food from other places but poorly made, the same way that American food is just regular food from other places (pizza, hamburgers, tacos, steak, etc) but made better.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

See, everyone has a different or kinda narrow minded (for lack of a better word, I don't actually think any of you are narrow minded) on what British food is. Sure Fish n Chips comes up but that's English fast food not what you'd be served at a restaurant.

Well at the end of the day at least we know how to make cheese.

I was going to say it probably won't happen but then I saw that Trowzaa is online. >_>

@slayer: Pretty much everyone has a narrow-minded (as you said, for lack of a better word) on every type of food. I do not think of American food as being primarily burgers and steaks (which is pretty much just American fast food, occasionally eaten at home and only occasionally found in real restaurants, not counting stupid chains)

Yeah which is what I thought, when some one talks about food from the southern states I don't think of burgers and steak.

American food isn't better. Flavour, complexity and wit is replaced with mindlessly sating very base desires by making the food more & more unhealthy. If by "better" you mean better at knocking years off your life sure.

There's this thing, really cool btw (no pun intended), called ice cream in a cup.

See, you can hold the cup with one hand and use a spoon in the other hand. It's like magic shit.

Let me apologize on behalf of all Americans for not putting real maple syrup (which isn't any better than "fake" syrup and costs twice as much) on top of everything.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Confirmed for a complete lack of tastebuds. The differences between actual maple syrup can be staggering, let alone the differences between corn syrup unnatural trash and an actual quality ingredient.

If there's any condiment we do better, it's mustard. That weak american yellow paste has nothing on coleman's.

I hate to agree with Thrash when it comes to anything, but he is actually right. Fake syrup is shit.
