yup.. looks like I avoided the hangover truck once again!
(where's it been all weekend I wonder? perhaps I scared it off?)
for those of you blessed by an ignorance of this phenomenom.. allow me to explain..
Almost any weekend without fail... if I go out drinking the night before.. the following morning whilst trying to sleep off the alcohol, I'll be visited by the "hangover truck" which, in actual fact.. is a cleverly disguised old-fashioned icecream truck.. You can hear this damn thing from a mile off.. we're not talking conventional tinny pre-recorded music like other ice-cream trucks.. OOOH NO, instead.. these bastards use a GREAT BIG FUCKIN' BELL!! and, whilst it lazily passes my bedroom window OVER and OVER.. it makes this ear shattering *DING DING!!...... DING DING!!* noise.. perfectly modulated and frequency adapted to make my alcohol addled brain go screaming up the walls insane..
on a different note tho', I've always wondered this.. if I wuz to steal a conventional icecream truck (y'know.. with the usual clunky music-box tune) and take it for a spin on a highway.. does the music speed up the faster I drive it?
how fast can an icecream truck go? and.. could the kids keep up with it?
and would my neighbours mind particularly if I just happened to accidently blow up that *DING DING!!* truck with a rocket launcher?
