    After the popularity of the movie "The Sting," the ice cream vans used to play Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer."

    A local ice cream van might have played The Entertainer as well - I have in my mind an ice cream van playing it.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    There's an ice cream van in my town that still plays this tune.
    Oh to be a kid again with a can of Top Deck on a hot summer day, now that would be good.

    Some parents tell their kids that when the ice cream van plays the ‘song’ it means they’ve SOLD OUT of ice cream !!

    Can't remember if i posted this before but my best memory of the Ice Cream van was being at my grandparents flat in Leyton one summer and the Ice Cream Van came, we all rushed down the stairs to it (as did other kids) and I was allowed to have a "Popeye" which was an Ice Cream with an Ice Lolly shoved in the top, except this one was a double, Twin cornet with two scoops of ice cream in each and two ice lollies sticking out! Magic!

    Didn't Eric Morecambe or someone like that originally say that as a joke? I think I heard someone say that.
