Ruthless British Ice Cream Truck War Caught on Tape

New, 3 comments

The ice cream truck wars are getting brutal out there: two truck drivers, one Mohammed "Mr. Whippy" Mulla and one Zeheer "Mr. Yummy" Ramzan, got into a turf war over parking spots in Blackburn, England (about 30 miles outside of Manchester). There was a lot of swearing, accusations of using powdered ice cream, a broken window and a fender bender before it was through.

One bystander told the Lancashire Telegraph, "I couldn't believe it when Mr Yummy jumped out of his van and smashed Mr Whippy's window, you just don't expect that around here." Nor do you anywhere, really. And yes, someone caught this all on film:
