Coning is the term for when idiots order an ice cream cone, and grab it by the ice cream instead of the cone itself as some form of a joke. McDonald’s managers have caught onto the stupid craze, and are shutting it down. When they notice younger people order an ice cream cone, and have a camera out, they are on guard. They either don’t give it to them, until they slowly grab it by the cone, or just simply put a cup over the ice cream. The videos are shared on StuffIStole.
