American Family Association Does Not Want to See Schweddy Balls

The American Family Association (AFA) demands that Ben & Jerry's new SNL-inspired ice cream flavor Schweddy Balls be stopped!

Schweddyballs Right Wing Watch reports:

Urging activists to demand “that no additional Schweddy Balls ice cream be distributed,” the AFA wants its members to tell Ben & Jerry’s to “refrain from producing another batch with this name or any other offensive names or you will no longer be able to purchase their products.” The AFA also knocks Ben & Jerry’s Hubby Hubby ice cream, produced to raise awareness of marriage equality, and laments “that offending customers has become an annual tradition for Ben & Jerry’s”:

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.

The AFA tells its members to TAKE ACTION: "Please send Ben & Jerry's Public Relations Manager, Sean Greenwood, an email letter requesting that no additional Schweddy Balls ice cream be distributed. Also, highly recommend they refrain from producing another batch with this name or any other offensive names or you will no longer be able to purchase their products."

  1. a/ Children wouldn't get the reference anyway

    b/ Christianists aren't B&J's target market. Teens and young people are. And teens and young people will chuckle at the name.

  3. Ben & Jerry's ice cream already offends me by the price of their products, so I won't buy it. What do I care what offense anyone else has to attribute to their products?

  4. Sorry Eddie, but Schweddy Ass Crack only comes as a banana split with Santorum Special Sauce.

  7. You guys tell everyone to boycott so many things! for what purpose? to shield our children from being exposed to what they will be exposed to later on in life? why do that? children who are shielded so much are the ones who rebel and turn to violence! Everyone tries to shield there kids from reality to "protect" them. Maybe they dont need to be protected. You expose them to school, friends, other adults, do you think that they say everything that you consider "good" at all time? no, most likly they are talking about stuff that your kids know that they cant say in front of you parents so they hide what there friends and them talk about, therfor they are hiding stuff from you and its all you, as the parents, fault! Your the reasons kids hides stuff from parents! not society, not other people, its the partents! They hide stuff because they dont feel comfortable talking about stuff with you becuase you try to aviod or pretend certain things dont exsist! Remember, its all the parents fault! Dont get upset when your children and yours relaionship fail by the time he turns ten!
