Alec Baldwin Tells Schweddy Balls Haters to “Go Fudge Themselves” on SNL

Posted on: September 26th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Alec Baldwin hosted the season premiere of Saturday Night Live this week, and referenced the limited edition Schweddy Balls ice cream in his opening monologue.  He acknowledged the current boycott of the Ben & Jerry’s flavor, spearheaded by conservative group OneMillionMoms, though didn’t mention them by name (“family organization”).  So, in response to this unfounded right-wing outcry, Baldwin delivered faux news of a retaliatory flavor called “Go Fudge Yourself” for all the haters.

OneMillionMoms is an affiliate offshoot of the American Family Association. The organization is urging its supporters to flood Ben & Jerry’s with letters demanding a cessation on distribution of all Schweddy Balls product.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to munch on some Schweddy Balls ice cream, hit up 138 Orchard Street.  The Healthy Drive bodega is carrying a bunch of the Ben & Jerry’s limited edition tubs.  Get ‘em while they’re extra sweaty.  Where else have you spotted this gimmicky flavor?

The DOT Not Seeing the Light with Traffic Signals at Bowery and Delancey

The city spent loads of taxpayer dollars the last few years trying to remedy the traffic situation at the intersection of Bowery and Delancey/Kenmare. Road crews keep digging up pavement, repainting the lanes, and beautifying the medians. To no avail. The bigger issue continually shrugged aside is fixing the sequence timing of the signals here.
