Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream celebrated 35 years of ice cream making on Wednesday. The website got so much traffic seeking the free ice cream it crashed the server.

I assume that people went there to use their online locator tool, but an excessive number of people suddenly searching for free icream caused everything to freeze up.
They wern't surprised since they always give away millions of scoops on Free Cone Day. We are told that you can still find plenty at the grocery store.
