Niece wants Thomas Carvel's body exhumed

Now this is racy stuff. Tom Carvel, the godfather of soft serve ice-cream, flying saucer ice-cream sandwiches and Wally The Whale ice cream cakes was murdered, alleges his niece. Pam Carvel claims that her uncle was killed by two employees who Carvel discovered ripping off the company for millions. Ms. Carvel wants to have her uncle exhumed up and examined for evidence of foul play.

Isn't it Fudgie the Whale?

And, minus ten cool points for me even knowing that.

It is Fudgy the Whale.. and dont forget Cookie-puss...

Ok im just as bad as french..

Wierd stuff indeed. As long as they dont find a note in his pocket asking them to change the soft serve recipe then I say hey whatever floats your boat.

Okay, I'm chargrined: It is Fudgie the Whale not Wally the Whale. And I forgot the mention "Cookie Puss."

Thanks French Laundry at Home! Keep the cool points, we're all pop-cult victims here in America. No one gets out unscathed.

I have another way to lose cool points -- at Christmastime, they turned Fudgy the Whale sideways, icinged him with Santa's head and called him Fudgy Claus.

Man, I watched a lot of TV as a child.

Fudgie was an important part of father's day. If your dad got a Fudgie the Whale cake, he knew that he was, indeed, a whale of a dad.
