Ben & Jerry's
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:

"...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.

I have trouble believing this is even a "topic". Leave your bible in the car, mom.

Jesus H Christ on a flaming upside down cross..People have to make controversy out of nothing. Let these wackjobs who believe teens shouldnt have proper access to birth control focus on that battle first before going after an established brand that enjoys making saterical flavors of ice cream..

Ain't extremism wonderful?  There's always someone more extreme who can call you a heretic, and whom you can call a nutball.

I found Bluebell's new A+M inspired flavor pretty offensive.  Death by Bonfire Brownie, probably just me though.

I am a Texas Tea Party Conservative.

I saw the old skit with Alec Baldwin on SNL. It was hilarious and so is this product.

I think One Million Moms is a great organization, but I think they have far more serious concerns to be involved with: like sexting, teen promiscuity, adolescent drug and alcohol abuse, questionable parenting practices, school reforms, etc...than whether an ice cream company puts out this product. Get a sense of humor over this somewhat trivial issue.

Don't like it? Don't buy it...

But allow me to make my own adult decision here. Isn't that what conservative stances are supposed to be? The right to CHOOSE for yourself without influence or pressure from any outside group or governement. The right to freedom of choice...

Pick a different battle, Moms.

Part of me hopes these moms win just so I get to see the headline,"One Million Moms Eff Schweddy Balls."

I'm as conservative as it gets, but this is a stretch. It's fucking ice cream.

Must people like you ALWAYS cuss and call people names? Have we sunk so low as a society that no one can make a point any longer without showing their ignorance? We do have a language - English. (Or, if you like, Spanish). Both are full of quite descriptive pronouns, adjectives and adverbs that are not offensive. Oh, and by the way, it's "satirical." Unless, of course, you are creating a new word out of satire and hysteria! (I LIKE it!)

It is pretty tasteless considering the kids who died when the bonfire collapsed several years back.

Conservative stances = freedom of choice (execpt when it comes to a woman's uterus).

Are you so ignorant that you have to use the F word? This IS a public forum, after all.

Do conservatives really use the F-word in public?

Went there Wednesday for dinner, actually. Very Good. Not, "Garland" good but definitely, good enough for me to return.I especially liked their rolls. The skins are very thin and light.

I'll read it while eating Schweddy Balls ice cream and cursing at the football game. I'm pretty sure Jesus would approve. He was a jokester in his day.

Why? Is there a verse about Schweddy Balls? If so, would you quote it for us?

Coleman..are you not aware of what "sexting" is?... or what is it that loses you?

Since when is the First Amendment of the Constitution (freedom of speech) not allowed in a PUBLIC forum?

Well, isn't doing the "F word" how most of those One Million Moms got to be moms?
