The man who wrote the music you hear when the Mr. Softee truck drives down your block has gone to his eternal rest.
Les Waas was the man behind the music we all loved as children and then grew to hate once we had our own children.
Funny thing is, that’s one of the few ice cream truck jingles that I don’t mind. The one that’s constantly driving down our block playing music from The Sting is really the one I want to take a bazooka to. Fans of the TV show Bones may recall when Booth flipped out on an ice cream truck and shot the clown. I’ve sometimes thought about how much fun that would be.
