Ah, Regret.


Update: BGICT = TITC (Trapped in the Closet)?

So here’s a somewhat disappointing follow-up to my previous post.  It would seem that the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck (BGICT)–the news of which whipped up a coneful of internet frenzy (with rainbow sprinkles on top) and inspired my new Big Gay Career Plan (BGCP)–is more elusive than a unicorn.  And I don’t mean a unicorn in this blog (where you can see one in every paragraph if you look hard enough)–I mean a unicorn in the wild.

I recently received some BGICT-watch updates from East Coast correspondents Shelley (PA-based) and Campbell (Boulder-based, but who just returned from on an epic food/drink pilgrimage to the mother state [NJ]).  Last Sunday, these two epicurious adventurers met up in NYC for a casual outing (pun intended), which means they found themselves smack in the middle of the BGICT’s gay-borhood.  So when it came time for dessert, Shelley reports, there was only one logical option.

Prior to this trip, Campbell and I had discussed adventuring forth into the city in search of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Mainly, for our surly and lump-like friend Val, whose aspiration currently includes selling some food-based product out of a traveling, converted Uhaul (Help her make it happen Brendan!). The plan was to photo-document the occasion, and possibly film a short interview with the BGICT driver.

Now that would have been more deliciously educational than alphabet soup.  But you know what they say about the best gay(ed) plans…

[…] The only problem was, the BGICT never showed. Scared away by the rain, I suspect. Campbell did, however, ask a passing stranger if she knew where the BGICT was, but she only responded with a quizzical look and directions to the location of a regular ice truck.
No, no, no. You see…we wanted the big gay one.

No, no, no. You see…we wanted the big gay one.

And while that does sound a bit dirty, I completely agree with Shelley’s sentiment.

<EDIT> Before venturing back to B-city, Campbell couldn’t help but search for gay dessert glory one last time.  The following is the text message conversation which ensued:

Campbell:  The BGICT does not want to be found!
Me:  It must be at the end of the rainbow :-/
Campbell:  I need gaydar
Campbell:  He wasn’t “out” today

Speaking of priceless sexual innuendo… While so far none of us has had any success actually finding the Big Gay One (BGO), our friend Wix (what’s the female equivalent of a lezbro?  A lez-sis?) managed to get a little taste, courtesy of Twitter.

@amelish: today’s twitter double entendre RT @biggayicecream: “secret soft-serve” tonight: I’ll be out at Midnight in the East Village for a quickie.

@biggayicecream: I guess @amelish is right, but my double entendre was unintentional. Ha! We’ll be slinging cones fast-n-furious for one hour or so.

A tweet from the Big Gay Ice Cream Man (BGICM) himself!  Certainly not as satisfying as an actual Big Gay Ice Cream Cone (BGICC), I’d imagine, but a treat nonetheless.

Anyway, the Search for the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck (SFTBGICT) continues.  As does my gross Acronym Over-Usage (AOU), for which I remain unapologetic.  (You can thank Campbell for that:  If Shelley = OMF, then Campbell = OAOU.  OMG.  STFU.)

Ice cream is a LOT more fattening than gays

Comment by VallyO

I thought the female version of lezbro was lez-to-be?

When given a choice, I will always opt for the big gay one.

per an old gchat, lunchtime cocktail (LTC[1]) somehow became confused with lesbian tequila conference(LTC[2]).
