The Ice Cream Cone Problem is when children’s decisions cloud the overall objective judgment of adults and things that are actually terrible are somehow deemed awesome, like ice cream cones. Who doesn’t like ice cream cones? No one! But they taste like cardboard and only make your ice cream worse.
See? It’s like we’re all mind-controlled in certain situations. Ice cream cones are TERRIBLE. It’s like asking someone to add styrofoam peanuts to your dessert, and then roll your hands in syrup and give you tiny napkins and no water to clean it up. THEY’RE AWFUL.
But you don’t believe me, do you? You still think ice cream cones are wonderful. It’s because the children have gotten to you. But wait, there are more instances. There are SO MANY things children have convinced us are awesome. But are they?
I rest my case.
