If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Burger King was happy about putting ice-cream men out of business. Given the gloomy economic forecast, one would think they’d be more sympathetic to the plight of the small businessman. But then again, this is the company that gave us the Whaler. Clearly, they could give a shit about the rest of us. Thankfully, there’s an ice-cream truck working my block about 300 times a day, so the market hasn’t bottomed out as much as Burger King would have you think.
