Penny lick bowls served up ice cream, with a side of infectious disease

Copper alloys are antibacterial, so perhaps better to lick actual pennies.


Hey, Bear Grylls is a hero up here! (actually, we have our own ‘survivor man’ Les Stroud, who more accurately reflects reality. “You’re probably going to die”)

Instantly reminded my of the Saturator my friend told me about when she was growing up in Poland. It was basically a cart that trundled around with a Soda fountain. There would be one cup tied to the cart. You payed your money and got the cup with Soda, with the choice to add Rasperry syrup. Then the vendor would wipe it out with a rag and serve the next person. (She definitely remembers them still being around at least as far as the 1980s)
