    People say you get what you pay for, but usually you don’t even get that.

    Wait til Nancy comes into money… she’ll become a Conehead! (My apologies to Lorne Michaels’ 1977 writing team).

    Costs sure have risen since this strip first came out. Today, an ice cream cone would probably cost $5—or more.

    A good punchline would have been for the 5 cent cone to come without the ice cream.

    The five cent cone is not worth it

    The cone is a lie.

    Wow, I do remember five cent ice cream cones. The last time I bought an ice cream cone at a shopping mall, I noted that it cost more than a gallon of ice cream would have cost at the supermarket.

    I think a better gag would have been a regular size cone without ice cream.

    A dime from 1950 would cost $1.25(ish) in 2023 while a nickel would cost around 60¢ to 70¢.

    I remember nickel cones. The closest I’ve come to that price in the last few years is $2 at an original Rexall Drug in Bar Harbor, Maine. There’s a gourmet ice cream store across the street from that Rexall; cones start at $8.

    Little-Known Fact: A person reading this comic in 1950 would later be inspired to create the taste spoon.
