This is true: Wingnuts go after offensive ice cream

We shoulda seen it coming. Now ice cream—or its name, at least—is dirty. Filthy. Vulgar.

It's the end of civilization as we know it.

Yes, Sooner fans, the good and decent folks on the Far Right are highly offended by the new Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor, "Schweddy Balls."

You may remember that "Schweddy Balls" was a pretty funny Saturday Night Live sketch some years ago. The skit featured a Mr. Schweddy (played by Alec Baldwin) and his special holiday baked goods, Schweddy Balls.

Ah, but there's no humor on the Right. These Guardians of All Things Good and Pure are wagging their fingers at Ben & Jerry's and all those vulgar American ice cream eaters who would stoop so low as to buy this product.

Read all about the controversy here.

See, here's the deal:

The wingnuts are very concerned about Ben & Jerry being gay for starters.

When they combine that image with the words "Schweddy Balls," obviously it is going to excite them.

They express this excitement in the same way as a schoolboy who says he hates the girl he really likes.

It's like that, except for the gayness.

When I heard the right folks got offended, we went straight tot he store and bought our own tub of Schweddy Balls. Nom-nom-nom!
