Recently a video of a girl in Texas, opening a Blue Bell Ice Cream container, licking the ice cream, and putting it back on the shelf, went viral.

Local Texas CBS affiliate KENS5 reported that she could face up to 20 years in prison for the stunt.

Her stunt spawned other such videos.

As a joke the Keller Public Safety Facebook account posted this picture, which found it’s way over to Twitter…

where everyone took it waaaaaay too seriously and then it got stupid.

Kind of expected that.

Ugh.

Right because cops randomly shoot people for no reason…or something.

WTAF?

Oh please…

Thoughts

I too thought the cops guarding the ice cream was serious at first glance. It might just be because that’s how wound up we are as a society now.

Unfortunately, the ice cream licking is real and maybe a larger symptom of all the chaos in the world today.

The moral of the story is don’t be a bad comsummer. I would never buy ice cream if the protective “tamper proof” seal is not inplace. Would you?

Now to Blue Bell’s defence, they claim that the way they pack their ice cream makes it so that tampering with the container makes it readily apparent and obvious that it’s been opened. But why take the chance? Why not poney up the extra $.06 per gallon to put a plastic seal on it like everyone else and then you won’t have to worry about this kind of crap?

BTW, at least one person wasn’t a crazed lunatic about the whole thing.
