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
sean.greenwood@benjerry.com
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!!!

Have yet to find it in stores here in south florida...of course it's not something you go up to a store manager and ask, "do you have schweddy balls?"

This is the problem with radical Christians and Muslims alike. No difference actually. Where are the OMMs when their husbands are encouraging children to kill living things with guns?

When Schweddy Balls drip on my chin, I politely clean up the creamy drip with a napkin.

The OMMs are raving lunatic fraus.  A recent kvetching campaign was against Lane Bryant.  Why Lane Bryant, you ask?  Here's why:

"Very upset with the Lane Bryant catalog that I received today! There are five half naked women on the front page touching each other. I am totally shocked by this type of advertisement, and will probably shop elsewhere. How can they justify this? Was told that it didn't mean to offend anyone, but just wanted to show the curves of the bodies of these young ladies. I told the person that if I wanted to see curves, I would have bought a playboy magazine. I find this very offensive and disgusting, especially since I have several children in my household. I would like to get some feedback on other comments. God bless the good work you do and continue to do so."

Nobody is shoving Schweddy Balls down their throats. Last I checked they could still choose NOT to purchase this ice cream. They are obviously not the target market if they can't take a joke from a clever company like Ben & Jerry's. People just want to complain about everything.
