Losing Their Marbles

| Victoria, BC, Canada | Uncategorized

(I work at a marble slab creamery. It is a type of ice cream store that allows customers to mix in candies, cookies, etc with their ice cream while it’s kept cold on a frozen marble mixing slab.)

Customer: “Hi there. I was just wondering what the name of this store meant. I never understand these metaphor names.”

Me: “Well, ma’am, the name is about as literal as it gets. We mix the ice cream on a marble slab.”

Customer: “Oh, so it’s an allegory.”

Me: “What kind of ice cream would you like?”

Little girl: “A scoop of the Boston Massacre, please.”

Father: “Sorry. That’s what she’s studying in school right now.”

Customer: “I’d like a scoop of chocolate.”

Me: “Cup or cone?”

Customer: “Do you have any edible cones?”

Me: “All of our cones are edible.”

Customer: “Can I take it with me on the beach?”

Me: “All cones are entirely portable.”

Customer: “Do you have any that don’t crunch?”
