If you have some ice cream, I will give it to you.

If you have no ice cream, I will take it away from you.

It is an ice cream koan.

Dangerous Strawberry Ice Cream

Srawberries / Danger / Awe

A man was walking across a field when he saw a tiger. Fearing for his life, the man fled, but the tiger gave chase. The man reached the edge of a cliff, and just as he thought the tiger would get him, he spotted a vine growing over the edge of the cliff. Grabbing on to it, he swung himself over the edge to safety.

The tiger came to the edge and snarled at him from above. While precariously perched like this, the man saw another tiger growling at him from below. Trembling, he held on to the thin vine that was keeping him from being dinner for the tigers. What could be worse than this, he wondered.

Just then, two mice scampered out and began gnawing at the vine. As they chewed and the man pondered over his fate, he saw a juicy, red strawberry on a ledge next to him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. Ah, how sweet it tasted!

Enjoy these strawberries in your ice cream.

The Stolen Cookie

Oats / Raisins / Sugar

An elderly woman, traveling by bus, had a layover during her journey. She purchased a newspaper and bag of cookies at a snack bar in the bus terminal and located a table. She placed her cookies on the table, sat down, and proceeded to read her newspaper

She was joined by a young man, who, to her surprise, opened the package of cookies and began to eat them. The woman, saying nothing, but giving him an icy stare, grabbed a cookie. The young man, with a funny look on his face, ate another cookie. The woman again glared and grabbed another cookie. The young man finished the third cookie and offered the last to the woman.

Completely appalled, she grabbed the cookie and the young man left. Outraged, the woman threw down her paper only to find her unopened bag of cookies beside her.

These are the old woman’s cookies.
