How many ice cream cones could you sell if you cut the price to 49 cents and bought billboards all over Chicago? Well, according to the manager of the McDonald's over on Madison and Taylor in Oak Park, they're currently selling about 600 cones a day.

That's 25 an hour, assuming people are eating ice cream with their Egg McMuffins. And don't assume they are not. Oh, and wouldn't a $1 sweet tea be good with that!
