Surgeon General Vivek Murthy was deemed a conehead by many on social media for his confession that he orders ice cream cones without the ice cream.
The revelation was made on Twitter alongside a picture of Murthy ordering an ice cream-free cone from a vendor on National Ice Cream Cone Day.
“This might be an unpopular opinion, but I love ice cream cones — without the ice cream. Happy #NationalIceCreamConeDay!” Murthy tweeted.

Indignant Twitter users responded mostly with disgust and confusion.
While a few users attempted to rationalize his statement, many more replied with GIFs, a short-video format, reacting negatively to the announcement. Some responses with extreme condemnations, most likely in a joking fashion.
“This is like the movie Hook without joy,” Adam Steinbaugh said.

Other Twitter users were more merciful to the surgeon general.
“All successful people have one baffling habit so honestly this one’s totally fine,” user Ryan Nanni said in response to the tweet. “The alternative is ‘I WON’T DRIVE WESTBOUND BECAUSE I DON’T RUN FROM ANYBODY, INCLUDING THE SUN.'”

Murthy would most likely be overjoyed to learn that the Italians designed a unique cookie just for his taste: pizzelle cookies. These classic Italian cookies have the same flavor and texture as his beloved waffle cones and can be ordered in most stores or made at home with a few simple ingredients. Best of all, these can be ordered and consumed without the social taboo attached to an ice cream cone bereft of ice cream.
