It's a matter of days before those Minn-Max guys show up with that thing. There will be, however, a bunch of 'em who are pissed they dumped their Reflexes in lieu of Bergmans. C'est la vie fly-boys.

Do Dairy Queens have landing strips?

Way cool. I bet you could win a couple of categories in Oscola with that thing.

Sorry to disappoint, but no Minn-Max'rs have expressed interest in owning a Flite Bike in the time since the link was first posted in our YahooGroup in March of 2002. (You remember, Joe. Back when you rode a Silver Wing with us.)

As for DQ's and landing strips, the airport in Saginaw Texas apparently has a Dairy Queen north of the runway. Back in the late 80s the field wasn't illuminated, so as night approached pilots would execute the 'Dairy Queen Approach'. This consisted of lining up with a large, brightly lit American flag at the DQ and heading due south for three quarters of a mile to reach the beginning of the runway. Does that count?

I thought it was just a joke that Minn Max-ers knew the location of every DQ in the metro. I didn't realize that they knew the location of every DQ, full stop.

Never under estimate the power of ice cream.

Ice milk, Adam. In high school I worked at a Dairy Queen and every time we called it "ice cream" the boss would yell at us and say that it wasn't ice cream, it was "Dairy Queen." When we argued with the old German about it, he'd say that if we couldn't be brought to call it "Dairy Queen" we at least should call it "ice milk" as it's only 5% milkfat and by law it has to be at least 10% milkfat to be ice cream.

Oh, and when we were out of frozen yogurt he'd tell us to tell the young ladies it was 95% fat free; I preferred to say it was 5% fat. But then, I was getting paid $3.75 an hour and I thought it was kind of misleading to say that something that's 5% fat is 95% fat free - just imagine if the Motel 6 in Duluth said it was 99% knife-fight free!

Ice milk, Adam...

Yeah, I'm aware of the content of Dairy Queen's frozen desert that I refer to as ice cream, but is technically ice milk. Doesn't matter to me. I'll revel in my inaccuracies and use the accepted colloquial description of "ice cream" for all things ice cream like, be it DQ's ice milk, Culver's frozen custard, TCBY's frozen yogurt or whatever. Besides, the phrase just doesn't have the same punch when it's "Never under estimate the power of ice milk."

Neat story about your experience working at a Dairy Queen. Sounds like the boss was wound a bit tight, but your perspective, Tom, was as cool as the "ice cream" you sold.
