Tampa resident Anthony Lamont has frozen treats to die for.

Driving the news: Lamont drives what he claims to be the world's only ice cream hearse, dubbed Frozen Stiffs.

  • Complete with a casket freezer, Lamont serves boozy popsicles and classic frozen treats from the 1967 hearse's passenger window.
  • The hearse celebrates its first year in business next month.

The inspiration: Comedian Steven Wright's line, "The ice cream truck in my neighborhood plays 'Helter Skelter.'"

  • Lamont has been buying hearses since he worked for a funeral home in the late 1980s. Frozen Stiffs is his fifth.
