Still recovering from Canada Day, byoo? Guess Independence Day isn't a big deal up in Loyalist Land, eh?

Yesterday a motion was made, seconded and passed to establish an ice cream parlor along with the Lizard Island Tiki Bar. Perhaps, in the spirit of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia, celebrity-linked ice cream flavors could be offered. How about:

Liz Lemon Sherbet
Harry Lime Sherbet
Pears Hilton (Paris or Perez?)
Milli Vanilli
Fug Girls Fudge Ripple

Surely other Lizards can come up with far more creative flavor names than these.

Nosy, great idea.

Rocky Balboa Road, made with nuts that are a little past their prime.

Janet Neapolitano. Three-flavor ice cream with secure borders between the stripes.

Spiccoli Spumone--the green part smells kinda funny.

Brad Peach Pitt, goes well with Angelina Tangerina, but doesn't mix with Vanilla Anniston, even tho it used to.

Spiccoli Spumone


How about this, in honor of our resident Cryptid: Sasquatch Sarsaparilla Float?

I'm humbled by Lizard brilliance and wit. I'm also already jonesing for some congealed lactic fluid, and it's not even noon yet!

Trying to get some work done today, whilst keeping an eye on World Cup QFs online, but it sure is tough multi-tasking.

Anna Chapman Cheesecake--initially tastes all American, but the taste of Russian Tea Cake comes out eventually.

Can you believe Brazil lost?

Our guess is one chilly morning when Mel leasts expects it he will be on his knees blowing a pack of n***ers and quietly begging if anyone of them care for seconds. In some perverse way Mel will finally have realized his own dream and become the n***er he wishes he could always be.

Just for Byoolin, the ice cream bar should carry Zut Al'Orange Sorbet

For Nosy, we'll import the most popular flavor from The Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth Beach: Booger. Seriously:

As for me, I'll take that wonderful blue flavor from The Ice Cream Store: Looks Like [Insert trade name of certain erectile dysfunction drug beginning with a V here]

Ick nast, Sas. I can't even stomach cookie dough ice cream.

The creativity of the Lizards is fantastic! Love it.

My fave flavor is pistachio. Ideas ... ?

Now onto snarking. Wow, someone's actually dumb enough to marry Joe Francis.

I'm surprised Kelsey Grammer lasted 13 years with the former stripper/playmate/whatever.

Gotta love the "now we have PROOF that the kid is his son!" comment about Jacko's son having vitiligo. Post hoc, ergo propter hoc ...

Hi, Cali, How about Green Hor-nuts?

Mel Gibson is a nazi, the worst kind - one cloaked in Christianity.

LOL Nosy!!!

Cali, you're not the only Pistachio ice cream aficionado on Lizard Island. Mmmmmm!

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | July 2, 2010 4:31 PM | Report abuse

Since the word pistachio is a loanword from Persian via Latin, and is a cognate to the Modern Persian word پسته Pest, let's call pistachio ice cream "Paris." Naturally beige in color, but often died pink on the outside. Related to poison ivy, pistachios contain urushiol, an irritant that can cause allergic reactions. Also used to stuff mortadella, which is fancy baloney.

I guess "died" was a Freudian slip.
