Was just reading a trade magazine at work and came across a little news bite saying that Ben & Jerry’s released the results of a survey asking with whom they would like to share an ice cream cone . The number one person, with 21% of the vote is President George W. Bush. Bill Clinton followed with 20%.
Next three were: Angelina Jolie (19%), Jennifer Aniston (19%) and Kelly Rippa (9%).
Before looking for the actual news release online, I was assuming that if you broke this down by gender, you’d find that mainly women voted for Dubya and Bill, since any healthy red-blooded American male would give his left arm to watch Angelina or Jennifer (even Kelly) lick an entire ice cream cone.
Sure enough: "Men choose Angelina more than anyone else (24%) while women choose Bill Clinton tops (22%)." Duh!
Also, considering his approval ratings, most people probably want to share a cone with the President so that they can shove it in his face.
I also think it is funny that Ben & Jerry’s – the ultimate example of a hippy-dippy tree-huggin’ all-natural, granola-crunch type of company – holds a survey asking who customers would like to share their product with, and the uber-conservative and pro-war Republican President comes out on top.
