Cone or Klan Member?

ice-cream-klan-150.jpgOops: the owners of an ice cream shop in Ocala, Florida recently discovered that many people in the town had mistaken their ice cream cone mascot for a KKK member. According to, "the costume tends to sag around the wearer's shoulders, and the waffle cone is mostly obscured by the sign the mascot holds in front of him," which apparently is all it takes to turn a vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles into a menacing Klansman.
