This ice cream man got himself into a sticky situation on a Donegal beach

Life’s a beach.

THIS POOR ICE Cream man.

Surfers Bar in Rossnowlagh, Donegal, spotted this unfortunate soul in the sand. Seems that nice spot of weather distracted him to the point of no return.

The real winner here is Surfers’ Bar caption on Facebook.

He’s got 99 problems..

Well, a beach is most definitely one.

While many claim they helped (and failed) to push the truck out and got free ice creams for their effort, it seems Mr Whippy eventually did get out of the moist mess, with one commenter saying: “We were there ….tractor saved the day !!!”
