Police have reprimanded a man who ate from a tub of ice cream at a supermarket before putting it back in the freezer.

Hey everyone! Another idiot’s done the stupid thing again!

That’s right. Yesterday I wrote about some prick who decided it would be a laugh to lick an opened tub of ice cream at a supermarket, then put it back in the fridge, and now someone’s done it again.


Not only is this still incredibly stupid, potentially dangerous and not even remotely funny, it’s completely indicative of an utter lack of imagination, since someone literally did it and went viral the day before this video was posted.

Twitter user @GAYSHAWNMENDES posted the video to the social media site showing him opening a tub of ice cream, scooping some out with his fingers like a psycho, offering some to the person behind the camera who did the same, having some more himself, and then throwing it back in the fridge when he got nervous.


If you’re going to go out and perform a petty crime to look cool on Twitter, supermarkets have spoons. Do it with a spoon. Who scoops ice cream up with their fingers?

I said it yesterday and I’ll say it (copy and paste it) again…


In a world where there’s too much packaging in general, it’s dirty morons like these people who make it so companies feel like it’s necessary to cover everything in plastic.

Contamination is no joke with food and can lead to genuine harm and companies being sued. Now someone’s going to complain and the ice cream company is going to have to add some sort of plastic seal to their tubs.

Lovely. More plastic.

Also, food waste isn’t funny. The supermarket are going to have to throw that tub out now and while I obviously know that someone can’t be sustained on ice cream, it’s still the sentiment of throwing out perfectly good food that pisses people off.


But there is some good news; police came to visit the Twitter user responsible and hopefully, gave him a good telling off…

As if he tweeted that.. I hate this guy.

With that said, there’s a lot of people being homophobic in the comments to his tweet and obviously that isn’t okay. Nothing justifies homophobia and some of the comments are pretty disgusting. As much as I dislike this person, he doesn’t deserve that.

Just don’t f*ck with food in supermarkets.
