A fan wrote us about her summer camp job encounter with a mischievous campers who presented her a goofy food -mash they called “Chunky Monkey.” Monkeyshines aside, she – & we! – knew the name was a keeper.

A fan, huh? Ben & Jerry have been sued — evidently more than once — over their Chunky Monkey flavor of healthful, left-wing ice cream by the heirs of the cartoonist who invented the name and character in 1973.

UPDATE:  “& we.”  Sheesh.  Never trust a hippy.
