Ice Cream Pranks

We can come up with better ice cream pranks than this! These aren't pranks, they're desserts. Ice cream mischief is more like this (note the retro-ad exclamation marks):

1. Serve scoops of your favorite ice cream down the back of your guests' necks!

2. When trick-or-treaters come to the door, give them each a generous scoop of Sealtest ice cream in their goody bags!

3. How about an ice cream jack-o-lantern on your front porch! That'll be fun to fall over and fun to clean up the next day.

4. Or play bobbing for ice cream! Boy, that'll keep people amused for hours.

5. Tell some scary ice cream stories while gathered round a container of Sealtest in the dark. Like the story of the time you ate the bubble gum pieces in the Baskin-Robbins.

Feel free to add your own ideas in the comments!

Speaking of which: I love and appreciate all comments and I really, really do try to respond somehow or the other, and if I don't it's because I was probably in a panic about getting other things done in real life or on that other blog of mine. And with NaNoWriMo coming up...well, you know. I will be posting (oh, yay) but my comments appreciation might be sort of - implicit. But there.

Love the old pic! We are so deep in the farm country ...no trick or treaters for us :(

You could do the old stand by of ding dong ditching your neighbor and leaving an ignited paper bag on their doorstep with ice cream inside it. Sticky ice cream on your shoe is way better than the original alternative (dog poop for those too young to remember).

Ice cream "snowball" fight? Not quite a prank, however, unless you also coat the ground in a sweet, vanilla version of snow ...

You KNOW I love your site. I have given you some awards. Stop by and pick them up at your convenience!

At first glance, I thought the serving suggestion said orange tinted liver cake, and I thought "What a doozy of a prank."

Yum, I wish someone would play one of these pranks on me! I think my favorite ice cream prank would be a bowl of ice cream with.. marshmallow sauce and those multi-colored sprinkles.. and whipped cream! Boy, you'd really show me if you did that!

Sealtest ice cream! What a blast from the past. I grew up in Philadelphia and that's what my mother bought for us. Thanks for the memories!
