Frozen Custard

It is not just the custard that is frozen here - it has been extremely cold for the last couple of weeks. I spotted this sculpture by Patrick Amiot outside a gallery in the Yorkville neighbourhood a while ago. He is a Canadian who now lives in California and uses recycled materials to make his sculptures which all have a comical aspect to them.

Patrick Amiot made all the creatures in the wonderful merry-go-round, or carousel in Markham, have you seen it?

The sculpture is wonderful. Keep warm, Red Pat. We should all get through this cold weather somehow.

I bet there is not much market for frozen custard in your area right about now. However, that is a very cute sculpture.

It's never to cold for ice cream or frozen custard.

Cute as all get out! But the poor guy selling the custard looks about as frozen as his product! It's also interesting that the sculptor left Canada (Land of the Great Freeze) for California (Land of sunshine and warmth).

Looks a bit like Wallace in Wallace & Gromit. :-)

I wish they came up with another name for custard, sounds too much like mustard. Get your mustard ice cream!
