AN ICE cream van is still driving round like it is not nearly the end of f**king October.
Onlookers noticed the ice cream van in Weston-Super-Mare yesterday evening, despite the fact it was freezing cold and not an obvious time to think about having a Solero.
Ice cream van driver Tom Booker said: “I’m just trying to make an honest living by driving round in a van playing eerie music which somehow advertises the availability of ice cream.
“But even I can see that with winter approaching it does seem weird, if not downright sinister.”
He added: “And in case you were wondering, yes, there are times when I do feel a bit like the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”
Parent Norman Steele said: “It is a tad incongruous, but in fairness to the ice cream man, he does also sell knock-off baccy and pirated DVDs so I should pop out and say hello.”
