@Kfield.. "That sounds absoslutely unappetizing! :-)"

It does, but I used to love them when I was a kid.  The coke has to be very cold and you have to eat the icecream before it melts into the coke, otherwise it ends up looking absolutely disgusting.

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?)
