Two Scoops of Knickers in a Twist, with Nuts!

It’s been a while since I’ve commented directly on the headlines, but some things need sayin’, if you know what I’m sayin’ – and I think you do. 

SNL’s “Schweddy Balls” skit is one of the most low-brow, sophomoric, silly bits of comedy the show ever produced, and as such rightly earned its place in history as one of the funniest 5 minutes of television ever recorded.  (“Oh, I just can’t wait to get my mouth around one of your Schweddy Balls!”)  That Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream would want to leverage that fame to sell their product is understandable; that SNL would want to take money from Ben and Jerry’s, even more so.

That a hodgepodge of humorless harridans would jump up and form MASBIC – Mother’s Against Schweddy Ball Ice Cream – is lovely.  The far right wingnuts now jumping to protect little Johnny from finding out that he not only has a pair, but that his daddy did, too – regardless of whether or not Daddy has any now, after having been married to Mommy for a while – well, all I can say is “Ginger, get the popcorn” because this should be fun to watch.

It’s not like America hasn’t been waiting to get its mouth on some Schweddy Balls for a while now.  (“If you order from Season’s Eatings now, you can still send out a special Schweddy Ball Sack in time.”)  Also, one of the funniest interviews I’ve ever seen was with Molly Shannon, who commented that for the first time since she’d been on the show, she finally had her parents in the audience that night – and they did 5 minutes of ball jokes.  There’s a “Hi Dad,” for you. 

Ben and Jerry’s is, I’m sure, lapping up this controversy – nothing sells like news, and nothing makes news like setting some big Schweddy balls on the table after dinner.  Gosh, I can’t wait to get my mouth around some Schweddy Balls myself!

So come on, folks – Ben and Jerry’s might need our help coming up with some more names.  Carmel Sutra didn’t get boycotted by the MASBIC folks, presumably because the joke went over their heads – I wouldn’t expect someone who gets all worked up over a few glistening, oily, Schweddy Balls to have heard of the Kama Sutra.  And you know, Hubby’s Chubby – no double scoop of entendre there! 

How about Tiger’s Wood – half vanilla, half chocolate, with long hard crunchy sticks of chocolate cookie and swirls of, well, yeah, don’t go there.  Or The Appalachian Trail – with Brazil nuts! 

And if you like chocolate, you’ll love Two Girls One Cone!
