Ice cream man Umer Hayat's new sales pitch: " I scream -you scream - we all scream for Mujahideen"

Poor Umer Hayat:

"His ice cream truck, which he has used to make a living, is broken, and he doesn't have the $400 to fix it. …"

He could do an Islamist 'Martha Stewart' and use his jail time to generate publicity for a new brand called 'Mr.Jihadi' ice cream.

Image the media interest when ice cream man Umer Hayat starts driving around with a white turban and truck emblazoned with a soft ice cream cone, topped by a lighted fuse instead of a cherry.

The truck would broadcast the Adhan instead of jingle, and his motto must be "I scream you scream we all scream for Mujahideen".
