Teen Uses Hearse for Mobile Ice Cream Shop
Daisy you will find this article very interesting. Dylan Burden, 18 purchased a 1992 hearse in Pulaski, TN on Craig’s List and converted it into a mobile ice cream shop.
Dylan said, “I always thought it would be fun to own an ice cream truck and I’ve always wanted to own a hearse, so I combined the ideas just to have something different.”
And Fun Earl’s Ice Cream was brought to life. Fun Earl is a life-sized plastic skeleton who rides shotgun in the hearse with Dylan.
Dylan brings the ice cream hearse to local events such as festivals and car shows and shows up at Freeman Lake Park and the Elizabethtown Water Park.
He said he wanted to take something typically associated with grief and sadness and put it on a positive light.
A freezer sits in the back of the hearse, keeping the prepackaged ice cream treats frozen and Dylan has given typical frozen treats funeral related names. Ice cream sandwiches are referred to as “caskets,” snickers ice cream bars are called “entombment bars,” and the best selling sundae cones are “mourner’s choice.”
I think his unique mobile ice cream shop is getting the attention he wanted!
