The moral of this is that we need more statues of women, so maybe we should put up a 10m statue of someone called Margaret Roberts in a white lab coat holding an ice cream.
You do realise that this is one of those old-wives tales? Soft serve ice cream was invented in the US a decade before Roberts joined Lyons.

That's a thought; it would allow the pigeons to speak for all right-thinking people.
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.

I'd love to see such a statue. It would be torn down so fast, it would be great fun to observe.

An ice cream and a clipboard, to be extra sciencey. Just like that big one in New York harbour.

Not just one, we need 99.
