Are Schweddy Balls Delicious, or Just Irritating to Gay-Bashers?

I was a little surprised this morning when Erin Sherbert, the editor of SF Weekly's news blog the Snitch, messaged me at home asking for reasons why I might want to eat Schweddy Balls.

I mean, there are soooo many reasons I wouldn't want to, even though it is a new flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

But Erin the news editor had news: the gay-hating American Family Association is calling for a boycott. OK, that's reason No. 1 to try these balls.

I'll let you hop over to The Snitch to see what else we came up with. But before you go, if you want to know where the concept came from -- the concept that the AFA says "has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive" -- please enjoy the original Saturday Night Live sketch.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
