    Default I scream, "Ice cream!"

    I scream, "Ice cream!"

    What a funny sentence it is!
    Do you know anything like this?

    P.S. It's getting hotter and hotter day by day here in Japan.

    I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.

    I heard that some of your nuclear plants are coming back on line soon. The demand for air conditioning...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hello, Barb.
    Yes, it's a bit of a problem here.

    Nuclear power plants - No.
    Save electricity and Cool Biz - Yes. Cool Biz campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Ice cream - Yes!

    I have been to Thailand on holiday and on the beach was a guy selling ice cream. He was always shouting "Ice cream, ice cream!", but it sounded more like "I scream, I scream". I was always tempted to ask him: "Why do you scream?" But, I guess, he probably would not have understood.

    I had heard it as an ice cream advert and I found it such a clever and nice sentence.

    The following you can find some other ones that are usually used in advertisements:
    We're always pleased to meat you.
    Your views are reflected in the mirror.(Mirror newspaper)
    Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.

    P.S. Pun of the Day - Funny Puns, Jokes, One Liners, Word Play and Humor, in this site you can find more of these puns.

    Good luck!
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.
