Ice cream ban

THE TOWN of Wadowice has banned the sale of takeaway ice creams and cream cakes for the duration of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit. “Cakes and ice cream can easily go off in summer temperatures and can pose a danger to health, that’s why we’re banning sales on the day many pilgrims will be arriving.” That isn’t all that made it onto the list of prohibited items. Alcohol sales have been banned while the Pope is in town, even television advertisements for alcohol, contraceptives, lingerie and tampons will not be aired.
