Your Favorite Childhood Ice Cream Treats

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Growing up, whenever we flagged down the ice cream truck, my regular order was a Bubble O'Bill. My sister preferred the Fat Frog. If the ice cream truck from your childhood showed up in front of your house tonight (you know, through time travel), what old favorite would you order? (I don't think the Bubble O'Bill still exists in the U.S., but some half-baked research tells me it's huge in Australia. Can any Aussies confirm?)

2. Like most people, I live near lots of places where video stores used to be. What ubiquitous retail establishments do you predict will disappear in the next 20 years?

3. Do you still read a newspaper? I mean a real, inky newspaper. On paper.

4. We were just talking about doing a series of super-focused quizzes on our favorite TV episodes. If you had to pick one single episode to be quizzed on, what would it be?

Bonus: Anyone on Google+? I'm new to the party and not exactly sure what's going on. Why can't we be acquaintances?

Have a great weekend!
