Conservative Moms Claim They Don't Like Schweddy Balls in Their Ice Cream
Recently we told you all about Ben & Jerry's new ice cream Schweddy Balls, which is based on the SNL skit featuring Alec Baldwin. Well, One Million Moms, a project of the American Family Association, which promotes "the biblical ethic of decency in American society with primary emphasis on TV and other media," takes issue with Schweddy Ball humor. In a letter on their website they've written:
Ben & Jerry's
"...like a special edition of Chubby Hubby called Hubby Hubby last year which celebrated gay marriage. It seems that offending customers has become an annual tradition for Ben & Jerry's."
One Million Moms implores readers to "TAKE ACTION" and send the offending company an email requesting they stop producing such nonsense or they will be forced to refrain from purchasing their products.
Seems like a tall order, Moms.
The man himself said it best: "No one can resist my Scweddy Balls."
"Our fans get the humor," says Ben & Jerry spokesman Sean Greenwood.
Maybe we should all write One Million Moms and plead with them to get a sense of humor. And, just so happens we found the most fantastic means for doing that on Ben & Jerry's Facebook page, where they've created Schweddy Balls video cards. Now you can send one of four different Schweddy clips to one of your bestest friends. Or, should you prefer, the Moms.
