Garlic ice cream? I should think not!

May 29, 2008

Remember me, Blog Guy? My photo collection of the rich and powerful eating ice cream is queen-crop-face-160.jpgreally taking off, thanks to your help! You mentioned you were trying for a shot of Queen Elizabeth. Any luck yet?

No. We were all set to get one at a demo where ice cream was being made, but instead of scarfing down a big scoop with her bare hands as we were expecting, the Queen just made a hideous face.

That’s scary! What do you suppose happened to that chef?

Oh, grow up! We all watch The Tudors. What do you THINK happened to him?
