    My sister just let me know that today is Ben and Jerry's free cone day (April 3)! Figured I'd spread the word about free ice cream since I'm yet to meet someone who does not like it. This is not an ad, I don't work for Ben and Jerry's, and hope I won't have to after college :rolleyes:

    You're welcome :D

    lol....I should go take pics of all the fat lazy slobs sitting in an hour long line in Philly today for a free $0.99 cone.

    Rita's water ice did that a couple weeks ago and the cops had to come out to direct traffic.

    They are everywhere; the problem is that I'm in the middle of nowhere. Courage the cowardly dog lives right down the road.

    Damn that line must have taken forever, assuming most people ordered two sammiches. Was it good though or did they cheap out on the meat and stuff?

    Stock for now
    I had several friends who worked at Ben & Jerry's when it first started out at the corner gas station here Burlington, Vt.
    Many became highly successful mgrs or administrators when 3 plants use to run here in VT & made good $$.
    They bought or were given stock when it was first offered & made serious cash. I bought some myself & attended some pretty incredible stock holder parties. Their employees always got great perks & were a very good company to work for. Not sure now since Unilever owns it. They stopped the festivals & concentrated more on the bottom line. I am surprised they still do the free cone day.
