We Need a New Ice Cream Pun

Conan O'Brien points out just how many newscasters use the same line about ice cream... and it's pretty scary

Terrible heat waves mean that ice cream is bound to be a huge trend of the summer, and that's especially true in local news reports. But of course, since it's local news, and you know, people are on deadline, everyone is using the same exact line. Everyone.

In the supercut below, Conan O'Brien shows at least 20 (maybe 27? Not that we were counting) news presenters saying some version of, "I scream, you scream... you know the rest." The rest being, "We all scream for ice cream." Why none of the anchors could say the whole thing is beyond us, but watch below to spend a minute of your life marvelling at how many people think exactly the same way. "I don't think it's funny, I think it's scary," O'Brien says in the clip below. We agree.
