Mr. Softee Truck on Roof

My friend (who does not look for roadside oddities) nearly ran off the road when I gave a high pitch yelp after spotting a Mr. Softee truck squarely planted on the roof of one of their buildings. She wouldn't stop the car, and I had no camera with me, so it took going back with my husband to be certain I wasn't just having a low blood sugar yearning and the truck really was there. It's in the middle-of-nowhere in New Jersey; parked behind the depot sit lines of working trucks. It's a fun, fantastic sight and everyone will be relieved to know that the excruciating Mr. Softee jingle is not playing as you gaze at the wonder of a full-size ice cream trunk proudly advertising the brand's wares.
