Ice Cream Wars
Do One Million Moms really have nothing better to be upset about than Ben &Jerry's Schweddy Balls?
It's difficult to read the headline: "Ben & Jerry’s Schweddy Balls upsets One Million Moms" without picturing Austin Powers' Dr. Evil, pinky at his lips, saying ominously "One MILLLLLLION Moms!"
The irreverent ice cream is inspired by the famous Saturday Night Live sketch, but the American Family Association and its associated One Million Moms don't share the same sense of humor.
The group says in a statement that they are "fed up with the filth of many segments of our society" — apparently that schweddy under-scrotum segment, in particular.
The Moms call the new flavor "vulgar" and decry what it's done to something as innocent as ice cream.
If you ask me, OMM seems to be biting the hand that feeds them. If your soapbox of choice is the fact that you're, you know, a Mom (with a capital "M"), shouldn't you be a friend of Schweddy Balls?
Without schweddy balls, there wouldn't be any moms to make One Million Moms.
