The not quite free stuff files

I get grumpy when the slumping economy hits me where it hurts -- ice cream! Especially free ice cream!

For years, Stewart's Shops had a tradition of giving away free ice cream cones on St. Patrick's Day to anyone wearing green.

Not any more. This year the cone will cost you 50 cents.

Stewart's boasts that they scooped out 200,000 cones on St. Patrick's Day last year. Yeah, because THEY WERE FREE. How many do you figure they'll scoop this year?

That stinks. How much could a scoop of ice cream actually cost Stewart's anyway? A nickel? That's still only about $10K. Chump change! Maybe they can get some bailout funds.
