Popular ice cream overlords Ben & Jerry’s have today announced that they will be pushing for marriage equality through the only way they reckon people will listen – their stomachs.
“Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone. But you find out you are not allowed – Ben & Jerry’s has banned two scoops of the same flavor. You’d be furious!” Ben & Jerry’s have said in a statement.“But this doesn’t even begin to compare to how furious you would be if you were told you were not allowed to marry the person you love. So we are banning two scoops of the same flavor and encouraging our fans to contact their MPs to tell them that the time has come – make same sex marriage legal!”
Each store in Aus will also have a rainbow post-box and postcards for customers to fill out, which will be sent to the store’s local Members of Parliament before the parliamentary sitting on June 13. (The last one before the budget is announced.)
