One Million Moms Don't Like Schweddy Balls, But I Do

One Million Moms has an issue with Schweddy Balls.

Moms, an online branch of  right-wing, conservative, pro-life American Family

Association, based in Tupelo, Mississippi, has taken umbrage with Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls Ice Cream. On their website they claim:

"Ben & Jerry's announced their newest ice cream flavor which sounds anything but appealing. Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with. The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive. Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket."

Apparently, they were also a bit miffed with Ben & Jerry's special

edition Hubby Hubby ice cream, which celebrated

gay marriage. According to One Million Moms, "It seems that offending

customers has become an annual tradition for Ben & Jerry's."

One Million Moms is calling for a writing campaign to Ben &

Jerry's public relations manager, Sean Greenwood, requesting that no

further Schweddy Balls be distributed ... or else.

Perusing the One

Million Moms website, it seems they have problems with a lot of

companies and television shows, including Glee, Wrigley's Gum, Dentyne

Gum, and South Park.

My favorite is their boycott campaign against Walgreen's,

Rite Aid, and CVS for selling adult toys online. They ask, "When is it ok to sell

v*br*tors, d*ld*s and other s*x toys on a drug store's

website?" (By the way, they put in the little asterisks, not me.)

Personally, I'm looking forward to Schweddy Balls in my mouth, and no bible-toting mommy group is going to stop me from doing so. With

that in mind, I propose my own letter-writing campaign:

Write Sean Greenwood at Ben & Jerry's to tell him that you support their ice cream. Here's how to reach him:

Sean Greenwood

Public Relations Manager


802-846-1500 Ext. 7701

802-846-1556 Fax

Or Tweet him at @PRPoobah. Here's my suggested Twitter hashtag: #SchweddyBallsinmymouth.

And to right-wing extremists who can't take a joke? I say, BALLS!!!
