I was well into my early 20's before I had an epiphany moment and realised there is no such thing as a musical bus. My parents had instilled in me the belief (from day one) that only adults could tell the difference between icecream vans and musical buses. I used to sprint into the house for confirmation, invariably disappointed as they cocked an ear to the distant chimes...

When I was little, my cousin lived with us. We were six months apart in age. My mother told us that the ice cream truck was actually the music truck and would say "Isn't it sweet how they drive through the neighborhood to play music for you?" It wasn't until we started school that we learned what it really was.

Due to my mother being a devout nutritionist, I used to believe that the ice cream truck that drove around the neighborhood in the summer was actually a music truck. When I asked my mother why kids would run up to the truck, she plainly stated "They are requesting music."

when i was a little ankle biter, in the summer when the ice cream van used to patrol around the neighbourhood it used to play the music, well whenever the music played my evil father used to tell me that that meant they had run out of ice cream, so everytime it came past it always played the music and i used to laugh at all the other kids run up to it thinking they'd be getting ice cream, it made me feel so clever, how wrong was i!

I used to believe that the Mr Whippy van played the Greensleeves music when he had sold out of all the icecream! My father was such a cheap bastard.

A friends mum's told us that ice cream vans played their tune only when they were empty. It was like a siren so people would stay out of their way while they went and collected more ice cream.

During the summer months a van would come round our housing estate selling icecreams. On entering the estate it would play music over the tannoy to announce its arrival. My mother explained to me that when the van played its music it ment that the van had run out of icecreams!

When I was little my mom would tell me that if the ice-cream man came down the street with his music blasting it meant that he was out of ice-cream and just warning the people not to come out and try to order any. I believed her for a long time and was deprived of many a summer night without my astropop!

my mum use to tell me and my brother that when the ice cream man drives around with the tunes on, it means he's out of ice cream and the song is to say sorry.

My parents are evil. You know when the ice-cream van plays that really annoying song? That means that it's run out of ice-cream. I bear the mental scars to this day.
