Would Jesus Eat Schweddy Balls Ice Cream?
The American Family Association is boycotting Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream over the obscene name of their newest flavor: Schweddy Balls. The flavor is named after a Saturday Night Live skit about a baker named Pete Schweddy, whose best-selling holiday treat is Schweddy Balls.
Yes, that’s what Jesus would do — go into a hissyfit over a double entendre. The Bible clearly states that suggestive phrases are EVIL. Don’t believe me? It says right here — hmmm, wait, that’s not it.
OK, here it is. OOPS, that’s not it either. Damn it, it’s in here somewhere…
OneMillionMoms, a group affiliated with the American Family Association, is organizing the boycott. The group’s website says:
“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.”
OK, now that we’ve taken care of this Earthshaking problem…
