    This is based on an Alec Baldwin routine? They should have called it Bloviator.

    Yes, an Alec Baldwin Xmas sketch where he played a character named Pete Schweddy. And brought in a plate of his Schweddy balls. Say it out loud ... there, now you've got it!

    I haven't had any Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream ever since they quit making my favorite flavor of theirs, Wavy Gravy, which led to all kinds of on my part -- and apparently a lot of other people (there's a Facebook page called "Bring Back Wavy Gravy ), but I'll definitely try this flavor out since that SNL skit was one of my favorites.
    Don't remind me of the loss of Wavy Gravy!

    "The new flavor is available at scoop shops and supermarkets. It consists of vanilla ice cream, rum, fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls"

    That actually sounds delish! I will buy a pint if I see it at Kroger's today.

    That's still just as funny as it was then, if not more. I love Ana Gasteyer. She's totally underrated.

    I wonder if "Ben and Jerry's" ever made South Parks "Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls" ice cream. Maybe it's next.

    I bet children love Schweddy Balls though.

    Ben & Jerry’s announced their newest ice cream flavor which sounds anything but appealing. Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with. The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive. Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket.

    IceAlisa, my friend in Denver tried it (her B&J had a test batch) and she said it was really good.

    From Ana Gasteyer's twitter:

    Pls make a 'Moms Against Schweddy Balls' tee

This was an example - the "Wild and Crazy Guys" skits were far more funny. This skit made me squirm and feel uncomfortable.

    I don't typically buy Ben & Jerry's, but this stunt certainly will not encourage me to buy their brand. One of my DDs was checking out the B&J's selections on Monday at the grocery store. I thought of this stunt but I didn't see the flavor when I glanced at the case.

    Breyers was on sale and I had a coupon, so I redirected her attention to that part of the freezer section. We don't really need the fat and calories of B&J's and my bank account and children are perfectly happy with less-expensive brands of ice cream.

    Pardon my beeyotchiness, but newsflash to the offended moms of the world: I realize this may be difficult for you to understand or accept, but not everything or every product created in this world is for or about your kids, even if it is ice cream. You don't want your child to have it? Fine, don't buy it. Nothing wrong with an ice cream product aimed at adults. We appreciate a little attention once in a while, too.

    Definitely going to try this one!

    Plus, I am somewhat about the idea that kids can look at a tub of ice cream in a grocery store and be corrupted.

    For one thing, if the kids have never heard of the SNL skit, they will have no idea what the name is about. If they even notice the ice cream and ask about it, just say the ice cream has malted milk balls in it and that's why it has that name. End of discussion.

    OTOH, if your really young kids are watching SNL, you have other problems much bigger than seeing the name of an ice cream in the store.

    Sorry, but the name is so unappealing that it's probably going to prevent me from trying this one out.

    I went into a sports store and as I wandered the aisles, I saw a sign reading,

    BASKET

    BALLS

    I left immediately and will never return. AND I made sure all my friends with children do not go there!!!
