Alec Baldwin's Schweddy Balls are in the news once again as One Million Moms, a group whose purpose is to rid the world of offensiveness, is encouraging members to protest Ben & Jerry's ice cream over their upcoming holiday ice cream flavor that pays homage to Baldwin's hilarious, yet tasteless SNL skit from the late '90s.
The group, which has a Facebook following of 36,000, encourages members to boycott Ben & Jerry's to remove the limited edition flavor from store shelves where little ones could see it and ask Mama, "Mom, what are Schweddy Balls?"
Let's be honest, here. Kids under 6 won't get it, or be able to read it, kids over 8 will find it hilarious, and kids over 12 who stay up late on Saturdays or have access to a computer have probably seen the skit, which is available on NBC.com as well as YouTube.
One Million Moms is also the group protesting Chaz Bono's inclusion on this season's Dancing With the Stars because they don't want to have to explain terms like "transgendered," "diversity" or "to
lerance" to their children.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, Alec Baldwin defended his Schweddy Balls on last night's season premier of SNL. He mentioned that Ben & Jerry's is offering up a new flavor for the protesters to enjoy, "Go Fudge Yourself."
Perhaps One Million Moms should take a lesson from themselves on accuracy and change their organization's name to "A Few Uptight Moms." They could use Helen Lovejoy from The Simpsons for their Mascot.
