Hold it together Geekologie Writer. Irv Robbins, a man my girlfriend swears deserves two Nobel Peace Prizes, has passed away at the age of 90. Robbins is best known for putting the Robbins in Baskin-Robbins and providing invaluable aid in my girlfriend's quest to gain 30 pounds. In all seriousness though, I used to eat the hell out of some Baskin-Robbins as a kid, and Irv helped create countless memories for millions of ice cream loving children and adults alike. *sniffle* Thanks Irv, I hope you're rambling along that great Rocky Road in the sky. *sniffle* Hold me, mint chocolate chip.
