Sweet Revenge

Ice cream trucks in New York and Los Angeles have been selling “Eat the Rich” ice pops named after five of the world’s top tech magnates: Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Jack Ma, Elon Musk, and Mark Zuckerberg. At $10, the frozen pops are a fun play on wealth inequality that bring to life a famous line from French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau in 1793: “When the people shall have no more to eat, they will eat the rich.” The trucks, the latest drop by Brooklyn, New York-based art collective MSCHF, set up shop Wednesday at Washington Square Park in New York City and on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles until 6 p.m. Here's a look at their cheeky menu.

This ice pop features some of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ most recognizable features. Bezos lost the title of world’s wealthiest person to Musk this year — maybe because he divorced MacKenzie Scott and she walked away with $38.3 billion in stock — but he still has a net worth of well over $171 billion.
