I saw another thread about Willie

Apparantly, he and Steven Colbert have an Ice Cream flavour in America

Has anyone tried it? (Or noticed that I used the correct Canadian/British spelling of flavour?:p)

...Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler, which swirls peach ice cream with cinnamon sugar shortbread pieces...The company [Ben & Jerry's] is recalling roughly 250,000 pints of the new flavor because containers packed on January 23-24 and February 8-9 failed to list wheat as an ingredient, making it dangerous for those with a wheat allergy... bloggingstocks (http://www.bloggingstocks.com/2007/03/20/willie-nelson-ice-cream-and-colbert-filled-with-envy/)

But not the correct American spelling.

Yes, I notice whether someone is using British or American spelling. It is a way to gauge a person's "accent." Though you sometimes have people like Gillian, using American punctuation and British spelling. Heh.

I don't have a clue about the ice cream, though.

I like the way those words look with the "u" in them, okay?

I haven't tried either. For one, I don't like peaches. For another, I just got my benefits for the month cleared by my social worker today, and my money won't clear until maybe Friday. But at least I can buy food tomorrow, and I'll try the Colbert.

Thank goodness it's peach flavoured. When I look at Willie Nelson I do not think, "Gee, I want to go out and eat an ice-cream that tastes just like him!"

What's wrong with old-fashioned, spicy and flavorful? :confused: :whistle:

Don't mess with Texas!

Oops!

I see they mispelled Nelsone and creme, or is it creame?

It's Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream (http://www.benjerry.com/features/americone_dream_index.cfm).

I have two problems with all this.

1. While I also like the look of the "u" in flavour, I don't think a British spelling should be used in a sentence referencing an American topic.

2. How could Willie go with a Yankee creamery instead of that Li'l Ol' Creamery in Brenham (http://www.bluebell.com/)? This is akin to heresy.

This is akin to heresy.Their website says it is only sold in "Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia." I don't think I've ever seen it here though.

I live in Harbour Royale Condominium in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida. and have been told I misspelled
my address. In addition we share a zip code with another town and I have been told I don't know where I live.
BTW: There is no harbor (or harbour) although Indians did live here. Actually, we do have a significant Indian population, but the have names like Ranjneesh.

Heh. I had a professor get strict on the US use of commas/periods and parentheses, where the Canadian handbooks basically say "The Americans do this, the British do that. Pick one, stick with it, and it's all good."

I could have fought it, I suppose, but meh. It wasn't worth doing. (For the record, I tend to the British usage. It's more logical and meshes well with programming linguistics.)

The ice cream sounds interesting, but I'm also not a peach fan. (I'm also moving soon, so the less perishable/frozen stuff I have right now, the better.)

When I saw the thread title I first thought that this Ice Cream would have to contain "BROWNIES" with Willy's favorite ingredient!
