When we first moved here, I noticed this word all around the city. I thought either this is a great city for gays or they are purposefully being derogatory and posting it on a tremendous number of buildings, signs, and in store fronts. It was so close to fag, faggy, faggot, there had to be a relation.
Still, I cannot look at this word without smiling at my preconceived notions. This is another lick-able, likeable treat that also comes in a number of colors and flavors. It is ice cream.
