Why I equate the Good Humor truck with sex (it’s not what you think)

Remember how the cardboard packaging got soggier and soggier as you ate it? Yet you persevered.

Summers during my formative years in suburban NY were spent looking forward to the daily visit to the Good Humor truck. Often, the thought of a Strawberry Shortcake, Jet-Star or Push-up Pop was the only thing that kept me going through the mandatory fun of day-camp activities.

While you might associate the Good Humor man with the mustachioed, portly chap below, ours was anything but.

A high schooler who was a cross between Spiccoli and Matthew McConaughey drove the truck, often pulling up shirtless with a Daisy Dukes-clad fox in the passenger seat. These female sidekicks varied from week to week. Blissfully naive at the time, I wouldn’t have noticed if it weren’t for the other kids pointing this fact out.

Yes, the Good Humor man was a man-whore, way before the term was even coined. Which made us 8-year-olds even more awestruck. Not only did the guy have his pick of ice cream bars, but women too.
