Don't mess with Mr. Softee

Saw this gem in the Queens Chronicle....Apparently Glendale is a tough place for ice cream truck drivers. I always knew Mr. Softee was strong-arming the competition.
As a side note, instead of being serenaded every night in the summer by the Mr. Softee theme song, here in Taiwan I am serenaded to sleep by a guy driving a cart selling "Stinky Tofu" There is a megaphone on the cart that repeats Chinese gibberish well into the night....

Given the choice of what random food vendor I'd rather hear at 10 pm every night...I'd choose Mr. Softee, strong-arm tactics and all.
