There are few things in life that can compare to the unadulterated joy of stuffing your face with ice cream on a hot summer's day.
Whether you prefer a cone piled with a tower of sweet scoops or a popsicle that pays tribute to your favorite cartoon character, it's not hard to see that ice cream is the epitome of the perfect summer snack.
But that being said, this cool confection does have one minor drawback.
When it come to eating your ice cream a la cone, things don't always go according to plan.
The scorching summer sun can really wreck havoc on your scoops and suddenly turn your once Instagram-worthy ice cream into a melty mess that slides right off the cone.
If your frosty treats have ever suffered this sad fate, you know very well that nothing will fuck up your day quite like a horrific ice cream casualty.
But don't worry, you're not alone.
It turns out a lot of people have been posting funny pictures on Instagram and Snapchat that show their heartbreaking, not to mention pretty hilarious, #IceCreamFails.
So far we've seen everything from broken cones and pitiful scoops fallen smack dab on the sidewalk to cones filled with flaccid soft serve and a variety of melted, mutant popsicles that look nothing like the packaging.
Check out the pictures below to see some of these funny ice cream fails.
