What better way to celebrate the return of warm weather than with free ice cream? Ben & Jerry's is saying "thank you" to its loyal customer base on Free Cone Day. 

From noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, Ben & Jerry's of Santa Monica, 2441 Main St., is scooping up sweet treats for free.

Planning on taking pictures? Ben & Jerry's is hoping you will use the hashtag #FreeConeDay when you post your images to Instagram and join the online community in rejoicing.

What a time for me to be on a fast! Missing out on Ben and Jerry's. Wow! Maybe I can just go down there and watch.

I hear some people can achieve satisfaction just by smelling fattening foods ... but so far, I haven't perfected it!

Strange as it may seem, when I am on any extended fast I do get some kind of satisfaction by watching others eat, looking at food photos in magazines, and watching Cable Food Network on TV.

Jerry--- Sounds like a riff on Jimmy Carter having lust in his heart.

Now I just got a craving for peanuts!
