The Great Popsicle Disaster of 2005

"Giant Popsicle Melts, Floods NYC Park" (from Yahoo News)

I was going to comment "only in America," but apparently we were trying to outdo the Dutch (who, perhaps not surprisingly, once had one 21 feet long...)

Plus, a wryer version of same from the NYT (Free, but registration required. Oddly enough, however, Boing Boing reports that the Times has apparently endorsed the service which allows you to bypass the whole registration process, called Bugmenot).

UPDATE: "Fire and Ice" Redux (from "Making Light")
