This Guy Should Be Stark Raving Mad by Now!
August 20, 2016 5:29pm CST
I do not know how that guy driving the ice cream truck in our Chicago suburb maintains his sanity! I know he has to drive around in all the surrounding suburbs in DuPage county too. Having to listen to Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer" over and over and over again has to mess with the that poor driver's mind! Hours and hours of "The Entertainer" eating its way into that poor fellow's brain must drive him stark raving mad. I am hoping the driver of the ice cream truck wears ear plugs to avoid having the longest-running earworm in history. If the poor fellow is eventually diagnosed with stuck song syndrome and requires psychiatric intervention, I will take up a collection to help cover some of the cost. Pixabay Public Domain Image

@asfarasiknow A cousin and I played Greensleeves as a duet once at an eisteddfod and our teacher said it was originally written as a dance and so shouldn't be played too slowly. Unfortunately the adjudicator was a singing teacher and said we played it too fast! :)

We have an ice cream truck that goes through our neighborhood and I never thought much about it. But after reading your discussion now I'm thinking yeah they must get stressed after listening to that music over and over. God bless the ice cream man/woman!

I wondered why our ice cream truck driver listened to the tune 'Jingle Bells' all the time he drove by in summer. Probably It reminded him of cold snowy winter time when he would be free from hearing that same old tune day in and day out. Poor guy had to keep his sanity in check somehow.
