There are two small tubs of icecream in my freezer too small to share.
One Chocolate
One Strawberry

My wife claims she "hates" strawberry and I love it.
She wants the chocolate ice cream as its her only choice, but today I feel like chocolate ice cream.

The question: Does she have more right to the chocolate ice cream than me because she hates strawberry?

Is ice cream hard to come by in Hong Kong? Seems like you would just replenish the chocolate more frequently than the strawberry since two people are eating it rather than one.

Get a bigger freezer so you'll have room for more than single serve.

Your use of quotes around hates is confusing. You're implying that she does like strawberry.

There is a sexual solution to this problem, but I'm not sure if its appropriate that I post my ideas.

I didn’t realise there was a required special way to eat gay. Have I been doing it wrong all this time?

Or he’s using quotes in their actual sense: quoting her exact word(s).

no no no.

that the act of eating ice cream off a women, instead of in front of, was called out as "ruined". how can one not enjoy/like eating ice cream, or any food, off of their girlfriend/wife? if not, that's "the ghey"

No, but when the point is to taunt her, it sure defeats the purpose.

Unless of course you tie her up and then eat it off her, making sure that she’s unable to do anything but passively watch you tauntingly eat the ice cream.

Good heavens, no! Have you any idea what pink oboes cost? And you’d ruin a fine musical instrument like that by putting ice cream on (and thereby, in) it?

Heathen!

No The Final Dakar, pink and oboe are both English words. If it was French it would be hautbois rose.

No need to thank me.

No septic, apparently the phrase originates with Peter Cook - I used Google. You could also Google Peter Cook to learn more about this very interesting comic.

You do realise that things happened BEFORE 1492 don't you?

And that this thread is about ice cream? I Googled again and found this :

True ice cream

Ice cream recipes first appear in 18th century England and America. A recipe for ice cream was published in Mrs. Mary Eales's Receipts in London 1718.

You let it thaw a little bit before you eat it off your wife’s body.

The answer is no. But, you have the right to give it up for her, and choose the one you love, twice. Making it a competition of giving is far more rewarding that dwelling in "rights".
Ya gotta applaud those bunnies for sacrificing their hearing just so some guy in Yonkers can have better TV reception.
