The Biggest Ice – Cream Sundae In The World

ice2.jpg

The biggest ice – cream sundae in the world was the size of a house. It took a bulldozer to scoop up the ice – cream, a crane to lift it into the Titanic boat – sized cone and a shovel to eat it. The raspberry ripple was like red white water rapids flowing like cravines in a glacier of ice and the chocolate chips were the size of boulders. On top of the biggest ice – cream sundae in the world was a wafer biscuit which was so big that it cast shadows across the whole town and a slice of lemon on that shone like the sun. The biggest ice – cream sundae in the world was covered in nuts the size of helium air balloons and a flake that was just like a telegraph pole. When the biggest ice – cream sundae in the world melted in the midday sun, melted ice – cream sauce flowed like the Bristol Channel estuary into an ice – cream puddle the size of the Pacific Ocean. It was even possible to ride a boat on the lake left by the melted biggest ice – cream sundae in the world – but you did need wellington boots, of course. The biggest ice – cream sundae in the world took a whole month to eat and one hundred people ate the biggest ice – cream sundae in the world for dessert … as well as three hundred more to clean up the thousands of sundae dishes and wash the hundreds of serviettes.
