It seems that One Million Moms and the American Family Association — because they don’t have anything better to do — have launched a campaign against Schweddy Balls, the newest flavor at Ben & Jerry’s (based on one of the greatest SNL sketches of all time).
Joel has posted a letter that all of us with senses of humor can sign and pass on to Ben & Jerry:
I wouldn’t dream of demanding that the women at OMM and AFA have a sense of humor. I honestly don’t care if they like Schweddy Balls as a name or a flavor. What I do ask is that they respect my right to choose the flavors that please me and be amused by the things that make me laugh.If they like Tough Love Vanilla with Dirt of Shame Sprinkles, that’s great. I say “eat up, ladies.” You dine on what brings you delight. And, truly, God bless you as you sup.
If they want to tell each other G-rated knock-knock jokes, a hearty “har har” is what I wish them. To tell you the truth, I don’t mind a corny knock-knock or riddle myself.
But I laugh at other things and I enjoy other flavors too.
