How to Cure an 'Ice Cream Headache'


Press the ball of your thumb against the roof of your mouth and hold it there a few seconds. Works great.

Also, to put a shirt on without turning it right side out first, align the tag with your forehead and pull that side of the collar to the back of your head, pulling the shirt over your head and right side out in the process.

Now you know.

If ever some body part really hurts, you can make it stop by biting off the tip of one of you're fingers. I asure you that whatever hurt before will be forgotten.

Now you know.
Ice cream headaches only last a few seconds anyway.

Try drinking a bit of lukewarm water. Of course, by the time you find some your headache will proably have gone away anyway, but...

If you hold raw chicken liver in your palm while eating ice cream (or sucking on a Slurpee or whatever), you won't even get the Homer Headô (ice cream headache) at all.

Trust me.
