Do you guys remember Good Humor trucks? I was about 15 and we used to jump on the back bumper and hang on. One day the trucks stops and the dude comes to the back and grabs the joint we were tokin' on and says to me "you drive."


Now he's riding on the back and I am going down the street laughing my ass off and ringing the bell trying to figure out how to shift. Some neighbor saw me and called my Mom. She was not pleased. 





LOL! That's a funny story Prof. I remember the Good Humor trucks. Do you remember the Good Humor man? He used to dress all in white, with a white hat and walk around the neighborhood pushing his refrigerated push-cart with bells on the handle.

Absolutely. And my favorite...Mister Softee. Also...Charles Chips.


Speaking of jumping on the back bumpers...did you "skitch"? Grabbing a bumper when the street was covered with snow/ice and riding as long as you could. VW Bugs were the best...easy bumper to grab & hang on to.





I remember Mister Softee. Also Bungalow Bar.


Never skitched. We rode the bumpers of buses. I take that back. When I was an adult and should have known better my buddy and I had his kid drive down the rode pulling us on a couple of sleds during a snowstorm.


I'm deep in my sixties and still have not grown up. I hopefully never will.






The Mr. Softee still comes around NYC neighborhoods, but I haven't seen a Bungalow Bar truck since the 1970's. Some kids in the neighborhood used to have a song that they would sing to the Bungalow Bar driver. I can still hear them.."Bungalow ice cream tastes like tar, the more you eat them the sicker you are." lol! The ice cream was delicious, but I used to sit on my friends stoop and laugh at the look a p!ssed off Bungalow driver would give those kids.


Sometimes he would get so mad at those kids that he wouldn't stop his truck on that block. If me or my friend wanted ice cream we would raise our hands and he would stop the truck in spite of the kids singing to him. I would tell him to ignore them. But he told me that he gets annoyed because he hears that.. in his words.. "damn song every block he stops on." lol. Sometimes he would stop and as the kids would get closer to the truck to buy ice cream he would drive away. lol It was like watching a comedy show. I guess he figured that if they were going to tease him, from time to time he would do the same to them.

From another thread.


Lauren, I agree with your friends when it comes to the never ending Italian American sauce/gravy debate. It's gravy, for the people who call it gravy, it's like our secret handshake.


Macaroni is slang for any kind of pasta.


Marinara is just called marinara or the Italian American slang word marinarde. 


What goes on meats like poultry or beef is brown gravy.










My Brooklyn/Staten Island friends continues to call their Sunday meals consisting of "Sunday Gravy" as I read it's called ragu. Needless to say all pastas are  macaroni...Laughing


By the way behind my Italian friends' back..as within my family we call marinara a sauce and gravy goes on mashed potatoes...Tongue Out. Sauce with lots of meat is refer to..gravy, ragu or bolognese..and various pastas are called what is said on the box..boy this is confusing ....Wink

lol! There's a funny TV commercial for sauce/gravy. It's 2 brothers going back and forth correcting eack other, one brother says sauce and the other brother says gravy. That TV commercial always gives me a good laugh.

I don't remember the Good Humor man on a bike. I guess the Good Humor man in your area was more up to date. Laughing


Wow, I forgot all about the change holder the Good Humor man had, I used to think it was so cool. No pun intended.

Speaking of Good Humor carts...the Mr Softee truck comes to my block after 11PM. This is crazy, what kid is awake with a desire for ice cream after 11PM?  As the calender turns to September, it still comes around 11PM making their appearance with their musical jingle.  Come on..back to school is just around the corner, kids need their sleep.  After labor day, I hope to hear that jingle for the last time this year.
