Mr. Whippy - Ice cream for the depressed

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing goes right, and you just feel like crap? What's the one thing that always cheers you up? No, I'm not talking about the Peanut Butter Jelly Time song, though that tends to do the trick too.

Ice cream, I'm not sure what part of it's molecular makeup always make you feel better, but it just does. That's why someone invented Mr. Whippy. Mr. Whippy is an ice cream machine that listens to your voice and dispenses a set amount of ice cream based on how miserable you are.

Of course if I had one of these around, I'd always be feigning misery. I wonder, if it doesn't give you enough ice cream will it know that it just made you miserable and give you more?
