Background: In Wooster, Ohio, it's war... "cold" war. Townsfolk are out to avenge past defeats, and regain their once-proud reputation. It all began two years ago, when ice cream parlour proprietor Bob Bercaw donned his apron and built the biggest ice cream sundae in the world. It weighed in at 8331b (375k)... and it put Wooster on the map. However, green eyes of envy glinted, and fastened on the title. Rivalry abounded. And Wooster lost its claim to fame. Undaunted, Bob Bercaw bounded back. With a Herculean effort he regained the title. Then lost it again.
To this day, the ice cream war rages. The latest salvo -- 20331bs (900k) of ice cream, cherries, syrup and nuts -- was fired from the Bercaw parlour. Again Wooster scooped up the title.
The townspeople are behind Bercaw all the way -- and why net? They got to demolish the fruits of his title-seeking labours. (His last monstrous effort was consumed by 9000 loyal Wooster-ites).
Is there the likelihood of an early ... lasting ... peace? "No," says Bercaw. He's prepared for a lengthy campaign. The equipment in his parlour will hold 36001bs (1625k) .. and he's prepared to stretch those massive resources to their limits. Besides, the people of Wooster wouldn't let him stop ... even if he wanted to.
SYNOPSIS: Two thousand and thirty-three sticky pounds of ice cream, cherries, syrup and nuts ... they're the ingredients which created the world's biggest ice cream sundae.
