The humorless, fun-averse conservative group One Million Moms, an offshoot of the American Family Association, is -- once again -- none too pleased with frozen treat liberals, Ben & Jerry's. The very vanilla organization is calling for a boycott of the ice cream maker's new, buzzy flavor, the "Saturday Night Live" skit-inspired Schweddy Balls.
In a public letter sent to its members, the organization acknowledges the origin of the rum-tinted, malt ball-filled flavor, describing the Alec Baldwin-starring NPR spoof skit in great detail.
He then explains that he sells popcorn balls, cheese balls, rum balls--balls for every taste--and the ball puns proceed for about four minutes. Ben & Jerry's chose to go with fudge-covered rum and malt balls for their flavor. The skit culminates in Baldwin stating that "No one can resist my Schweddy Balls."
