The president made a pit stop at Deb’s Ice Cream and Deli in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Tuesday, where he ordered a scoop of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream in a waffle cone, reports the Sioux City Journal. But what’s the deal here? If he wanted to eat with a spoon, he should have ordered ice cream in a cup. A Buzzfeed collection of images of Obama chomping on ice cream tells us that he doesn’t have sensitive teeth, which might have prompted him to use a spoon. Was he afraid of dribbling bits of the light green ice cream on his white shirt? Your theories are welcome, however outlandish.
