Evening Quickies: Parents Protesting Ben & Jerrry’s Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

  • A handwringing parents’ group called One Million Moms is protesting Ben & Jerry’s new flavor Schweddy Balls, which is named after a classic “Saturday Night Live” skit starring Alec Baldwin, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer. One Million Moms, which is affiliated with the Christan group American Family Association, huffily said of Schweddy Balls: “The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive.” Repulsive! Now, now. I know fudge-covered rum balls aren’t for everyone, but let’s not get hysterical here. [Flavorwire]
