Eddie Murphy: Ice Cream man always drove extra blocks away. And I know he’s seen us and shit, but I think he just be in the car with his friends and say:

Instead of a standard Quote of the Day, let’s check out the late, great Harry Anderson’s brilliance as Harry “The Hat” Gittes on Cheers:
There’s something about the ice cream truck that makes kids lose it. And they can hear that shit from ten blocks away. They don’t hear their mothers calling but they hear that motherfucking ice cream truck.
[After Bill Cosby called Eddie to complain about bad language in Eddie’s act]
Richard [Pryor] said, “The next time the motherfucker call, tell him I said, “Suck *my* dick.” I don’t give a fuck. Whatever the fuck make the people laugh, say that shit. Do the people laugh when you say what you say?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Do you get paid?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Well, tell Bill I said have a Coke and a smile and shut the fuck up. Jello pudding-eating motherfucker.”
Happy 57th birthday to Eddie Murphy!!!
