Big Gay Ice Cream Opens a Shop

What's Big and Gay and Delicious All Over?

The Beloved Truckers Go Brick and Mortar

Lyrics to “Thank You for Being a Friend”
(Slightly revised.)

Thank you (Big Gay Ice Cream) for being a friend.

Traveled down the road and back again (in your beloved little ice cream truck).

Your heart is true (why else would you open a store in early August so we could enjoy you anytime without stalking your Twitter feed to find out the truck’s whereabouts?).

You’re a pal and a confidant (we could hang out with your charming owners, featured in today’s video, all day).

And if you threw a party (your crazy toppings, like wasabi dust, pumpkin butter, spicy pistachios, and toasted coconut make every day a fiesta),

Invited everyone you knew (after all, you’re going to be selling treats from your pals, like Danny Macaroons, Treats Truck, and La Newyorkina),

You would see the biggest gift would be from us (nah, the mural on your wall of a unicorn wearing a Bea Arthur pendant is the best gift of all. That, and your homemade sauces and milk shakes.)

And the card attached would say, “Thank you for being a friend.” (Enough said.)
