"He looks like Freddie (the killer) in 'Nightmare on Elm Street,' " Severance said of the metallic skeleton.

As is often the case with truly monumental discoveries, the exact origin of ice cream has been lost to history. No anthropologist has detected traces of hot fudge on the pots found in the ancients' graves. No etymologist can say with certainty who first uttered the term ice cream , let alone who first ate it. So, anyone searching for the cold, hard facts will have to sift through legends of the past as well as the advertising slogans of the present.
