Does your cab do this?

This is just bizarre. Courtesy of DCist:
This feels like something that should have happened on April 1st, but instead, it’s happening in the middle of the summer. Purveyors of black car service Uber, whose existence was something of a puzzle to the Council of DC this week, is going to bring you some ice cream if you ask. They’re deploying their service via a few ice cream trucks later this week, according to their blog. $12 gets you 5 ice creams for your friends (said to be Klondikes and King Kones, amongst other frozen treats) charged to your card on file.
The day after the DC Council reversed itself on price controls for the company, I'm going to assume it's something of a thank you. Anybody try it?
