Whys that racist? Maybe he does.... Phone Post 3.0

Too bad that 8 seconds of google searching exposes the fuckhead that wrote the article as the race baiting jackass that he is:

The jingle played by Mister Softee trucks is instrumental and based on "The Whistler and His Dog" from 1960 by Les Waas. It is written in E-flat major with 6/8 time. However, many of the trucks play a version that sounds almost as if it is transposed up a half step, in E major, though still with the 6/8 time. In New York City, the trucks can only play the jingle while moving, to reduce noise.

A copy of the sheet music and all the words can be found on the Mister Softee website.


But don't let the facts get in the way of your faux outrage. Fuxking dumbasses.

Thanks for finding this. I bet the OP feels like an ass now.

Even if their jingle was based on a racist song (which apparently it wasn't) - what?

The ice cream still tastes good.  

Is the Mr. Softee Corporation made up of Klansmen? No. Are the drivers of the trucks racist skinheads? No.

No kid hearing the song was aware it was supposedly racist until that kook came out of the woodwork and complained to NPR.  It's like feigning outrage over a supposed subliminal message on a rock song that no one can hear.

So tired of all the endless PC posturing to try to establish some some sense of moral superiority because you have nothing else going on in your life.
