Ice cream shop wants to deter customers

29 April 2013

Bitterwallet - bacon covered in ice cream A German ice cream parlour would like to have less customers. Now, they could introduce fecal matter into their recipes or get patrons on fire, but they'd like 'less' not' none'.

So, they've whacked their prices up because they're just too busy.

Owner Niko Robert has been inundated with trade at Hokey Pokey and has seen queues of up to 50 metres outside the shop. He's worried that his shop will be closed down if he doesn't do something about it.

The price of his ice cream has risen from around a quid, to £1.35 per scoop, and Niko told a local paper that his main priority is to reduce business to an acceptable level.

He said: "The aim is not to make as much money as possible here."

This story has made it to most newsrooms around the world, and with free publicity like that, it'll only serve to get Niko even more customers. Complete with price-hike, he'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

    The quality of this "copy and paste" article is dreadful, to say the least... Now, they could introduce fecal matter into their recipes or get patrons on fire, but they’d like ‘less’ not’ none’. I wish I could get patrons on fire too!

    He could do other things instead, like only selling to people that he likes the look of that are not too fat. People that are too fat already could be mocked by the rest of the queue. Although that would probably attract more people, both to mock the fatties, and fatties wanting decent non-fat people to talk to them even if it is abuse.
