I broke Twitter. Not singlehandedly, of course, but maybe I was the key person who just merely thought of issuing a tweet and that caused the whole thing to take a dive bomb. Some website give you a generic 404 message, but NO! Twitter gives you Fudgie the Whale
Okay, it is not really Fudgie the Whale. That is just what popped into my head. In fact, I don’t think I know any other name for a traditional whale. Of course, there are plenty of Killer Whales with names, but I didn’t know any Blue Whales to have a name. No one would have one as a pet on a show, except of course Aqua Man. However, I think Aqua Man would have been the 200 ton whale’s “little pet” instead.
Fudgie the whale was and is a Carvel Ice Cream Cake that was brought back in the new millenia. Why did they think a whale and chocolate ice cream cake went together? Who knows. What we do know is that the voice of Fudgie the Whale in commercials was originally that of Tom Carvel himself, letting kids know that they can find Fudgie or Cookie Puss at their local Carvel! of course, now you can sometimes buy Fudgie at select grocery stores, as I have not seen a Carvel store often aside from on the East Coast.
The very unsettling idea is the prospect of being able to order your very own Fudgie Mascot Costume. I don’t know if it is officially endorsed by Carvel, or not, but I saw one on a mascot site. There is a BIG rule of thumb when it comes to costumes. Aside from the plastic costumes with masks that were around in the 70s through mid to early 80s, until people decided kids couldn’t breathe in those masks, if you have to put the characters name on the front of it to let people know what you are, it is not a good costume!
I would have put more of a tail in the back or had the back part of the whale back there. Instead of having it like he is standing up on its fin like Jabberjaw. I would have the costume look like the cake, just with the feet sticking out the front. Or put the whale sideways and then the persons face is the eye on the side. There would be no way people wouldn’t know what you were then. To me, the costume looks like a ginger bread man.
Anyways, I digress…
Oddly enough, all the cakes are Kosher, and if you go to the Brooklyn Carvel, you can even get one that is Cholov of Israel, meaning it is the very highest Kosher certification that you can get. I did not know there were different levels, but what I am more surprised at is the fact that the cakes are kosher, because I always pictured Kosher foods as somehow healthier. Oh well.
Maybe I will get a Fudgie the whale cake for someone who is way past kid age as a joke. However, ice cream to me is no joke.
