One of my father's favorites when he was a lad was ginger ale (not Verner's :-) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  His jocular grandfather would have the same, but he'd add some whiskey to it and call the drink a "mule's neck".

I grew up in Wisconsin, so Van is replaced with Ole (sometimes adding Sven and/or Inga).  Ole is by default Norwegian, unless you're Norwegian in which case Ole is Swedish.  If you're half-Norwegian and half-Swedish, Ole is Danish.

Speaking of which (International Wing of the Old Jokes Home):

A Scandinavian ocean liner shipwrecks on a desert island.  One year later, the Norwegians have built a fishing boat, the Finns have cut down all the trees, the Danes have formed a coöperative and the Swedes are still waiting for someone to introduce them to each other.

@Duane: I being the somewhat obedient kid that I was, and not wanting to waste it, drank the whole mug.

Max - I suspect that she was smart enough to take a smell before drinking up, or just take a sip and leave it at that. I being the somewhat obedient kid that I was, and not wanting to waste it, drank the whole mug.

@Dunae: The smell is bad enough. You really don't want to experience it as a taste.

I love goat's cheese -- but I think I'll pass on chocolate milk made with expired goats milk (did your mom actually drink thsi cioncoction herself?)
