    Why does Gabe have a Russian flag ice cream?

    Those are rocket popsicles, very common here.

    Don't those have red on top? There's definitely nothing to read into here, but the coloring is a pretty unfortunate coincidence right now.

    Real missed opportunity to have Gabe holding a derpy Merch pop instead of the SpongeBob.

    My attention was more drawn to the alien brain-tree behind the Ice Cream Truck.....

    Or you know, the artist is trying to avoid getting sued for infringement. Have to change details of the implied product enough to keep the lawyers at bay.

    that's not true.

    They've been drawing real life shit for years. Apart from the strawberry shortcake incident they've never needed to have "faked" up stuff.

    I'll be honest, I don't remember the color order of either rocket popsicles or the Russian flag. Mike probably didn't either and didn't bother to look it up.

    He clearly spent all his time on the licensed character pops:

    One of my cards was breached some time ago, and apparently used for a bunch of windsurfing gear.

    I'm not sure why my bank thought it was normal for me to suddenly do cool shit like that, but go figure.

    Nothing personal. It's just business.

    I've never had one so I looked it up. But I absolutely know the colors of the flag so this comic made me cringe. But like I said, it's definitely a coincidence.

    I mean they're also the colors of the US flag, which is what that sort of thing is usually copying.
