Don't Schwed It

It seems that our friends over at One Million Moms - you know, the 29,000 or so people who have decided that they can decide what's fit for you and your family to hear, read, see, watch or read - have gotten bees in their collective bonnets over an ice cream flavor.

Don't worry, French Vanilla.  You're safe for now, but we have our eyes on you, n'est-ce pas?

No, the OM Moms want to get their hands on our Schweddy Balls.  You might have seen the skit on Saturday Night Live years ago in which Alex Baldwin played Pete Schweddy, who trotted out his Schweddy Balls recipe on a fake NPR show called Delicious Dish.
Ben & Jerry's picked up on the idea to produce this ice cream.  Innocent fun, right?  They say the ice cream features little malted milk balls, so it'll be a while before this flavor can pry me away from my beloved Nutty Coconut.

Meanwhile, back in the land where people sit around and try to figure out more ways to harsh everyone else's buzz  - and do so by dragging religion into the field of frozen dairy treats - have this to say:
"The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive."
How about being self-righteous busybodies with too much to say about your ice cream and mine?  How's that for repulsive?
