Description: I’m hoping this is a good idea and doesn’t just get me into a lot of trouble. It will probably just get me into trouble. I seem to attract it. Anyway, you might want to snap this up before we get sued.
[A brief plea to the good folks at Ben & Jerry's: Please don't sue us. We don't have any money. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you know.]
