National Ice Cream Day PSA Beware the ice cream machine on aposChoppedapos

National Ice Cream Day PSA: Beware the ice cream machine on 'Chopped'As we hunt for free ice cream on this glorious holiday, National Ice Cream Day, let us not forget that not all ice cream stories end well. Especially when Chopped's involved. The long-running Food Network show pits four contestants against each other as they compete for a cash prize. They go through three cooking speed rounds, whipping up an appetizer, entree, and dessert using random ingredients provided in a basket — you can get everything from sardines paired with watermelon to mud pie and potato chips.  SEE ALSO: The absolute best and worst ice cream truck treats The dessert round decides the game, and even though there have been more than three dozen seasons of this reality show, contestants still make the mistake of using the ice cream machine. Stay away from the ice cream machine! The ice cream machine will only bring you sorrow.  One of the following is bound to happen: You go for the ice cream machine only to be foiled by another contestant who got to it first, and there's only 10 minutes left before you have to present the dessert and ahhhh why did you want to make ice cream out of fruit cake anyways? You get to the ice cream machine before your competitor, and breathe a sigh of relief as you begin pouring a hot mixture into the machine. Wait! The ice cream base can't be hot. It'll ruin the ice cream. There goes $10,000.  Everything seems to be going well, you've managed your time, and you've got the ice cream machine all to yourself. You put the ingredients in and move on to doing other stuff, like making a nice boozey sauce to impress the judges. You come back to check on your ice cream, and it's just soup. It didn't work. What happened? Noooooo! This time, ice cream's looking good. It's spinning in the machine and has the right consistency. You use a spoon to scoop the ice cream out and oh no, what happened to the spoon? The ice cream machine ate it!  That spoon scenario really happened and is even featured in the show's "Most Serious Mishaps" video on Facebook.  There are memes dedicated to the ice cream machine and it

Duchess of Sussex aposis struggling to cope and not answering my callsapos says father

Duchess of Sussex 'is struggling to cope and not answering my calls' says fatherThomas Markle has said his daughter Meghan is struggling to cope with the burdens of royalty, and refuses to take his calls. He said he is worried the Duchess of Sussex is hiding the pressure of her new life behind a “pained” smile as she adjusts to her “prim” duties as wife of the fifth-in-line to the Throne. But he revealed she has not been in touch since a phone call after the Royal Wedding while he was recovering from the heart operation which caused him to miss her big day. He told the Sun on Sunday: “My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now.” Thomas Markle, pictured here on Good Morning Britain in June, said his daughter had stopped taking his calls Credit: REUTERS/REUTERS He said that while her expression might be due to a “bad couple of days” it worried him, and led him to conclude she was under “too much pressure”. Adding that he could “die soon”, he said he wishes they would reconcile so he could tell her how proud he was - but she no longer answers her phone to him and staff at Kensington Palace will not return his texts. Mr Markle said: “I had a heart attack, doesn’t anybody care? I could actually die soon. Does she want this to be the last thing we’ve said to each other?” He said they pair had never gone so long without speaking, and that he wanted to clear the air and tell her how proud he is. Speaking from his seaside home in Rosarito in Mexico, the retired lighting director, 73, also offered an apology, saying: “If I had one message for her it would be that I’m sorry for anything that went wrong. I’d like to put our differences behind us and get together. I miss you very much.” In early May Thomas Markle caused headlines around the world when it emerged he had colluded with a photographer to sell staged
