Because CofFree Day at 7-Eleven isn't exciting enough, today's free mini waffle sundae day at Maggie Moo's (15801 Manchester Road, Ellisville; 699 F Gravois Bluffs Boulevard, Fenton; 8853 Ladue Road, Suite Q, Ladue)! They're giving away the sundaes to the first 200 customers from 3 to 6 p.m.

It's a good thing they've got that sultry costumed cow as their mascot. That'll keep them out of a predicament like the one a Florida ice-cream shop is in.

Ice Cream Family Corner and Sandwiches in Ocala, Florida, opened two months ago and recently saw an extreme drop in business. Turns out, some residents had mistaken the shop's costumed mascot as a Ku Klux Klan protester.

He's a mighty jaunty Klansman, what with the sprinkles and the swirl on top.

Store owners Jose Cantres and Jesus Diaz are of Puerto Rican descent. Manager Liza Diaz said she had never heard of the infamous hate group. They've retired the cone costume in light of the misunderstandings.
