Ben & Jerry's BAN customers from ordering two scoops of the same ice cream until Australia legalises gay marriage



Popular ice cream chain Ben and Jerry's will not allow customers to purchase two scoops of the same flavour until Australia legalises gay marriage.
The American company, whose motto is 'peace and love' announced the bid on Wednesday.
'Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone,' the company wrote on their website.

Be broke Being stoopit !!..not because I don't believe ppl shouldn't be gay married, but they could do well with having sponsoring mass GLBTQ marriages at their outlets , until that time come when Aussies make it legal, lookie here , freakin Taiwan is a finger snap away from making it official am sure liberal Australia will get there sooner....

Well thats a game changer!!!
I see no option now but for the Aussie gov to cave in and legalise it.

Virtue signalling at its most jaw droppingly moronic and pointless

Crikey, I'm lucky to be able to afford a generic cheap Neapolitan ice cream for the family let alone one scoop of B and J's

kind regards,

PR plain and simple.. sales were probably flagging at Ben and Jerry's Australian stores.
This will surely get them into the news..

What about a compromise - 2 scoops of vanilla BUT one is covered in chocolate sauce/sprinkles/a flake?

See, everyone wins.

As petty as the reasoning may seem, it still makes sense. People bitch about being denied two scoops of the same ice cream. Waaaaa. That's nothing compared to adults being denied the right to marry each other because of religious superstitious BS.

The point is to give them a slight taste of what it is to be denied something they somehow feel entitled to, but have no problems denying others the same respect.

Skadi ma bro, it's a dumb idea, most reasonable ppl get it, bring attention for Acton by throwing gay married events, ice cream, is a delicious luxury not a necessity.
They did not think this through IMO.

Probably not. But I think Ben and Jerry's do a lot of LGBTQ activism and stuff, at least they do up here in Seattle, and even provided icecream cakes for several gay weddings and events. So its not likie they haven't done anything else for the cause

Its actually genius if you think about it on a deep level.
I think I get where they are going with it
An ice cream cone with two scoops of the same ice cream would be considered "homogeneous"
whereas an Ice cream cone with 2 scoops of 2 different flavors would be "heterogeneous"

by not letting customers get 2 scoops of the same ice cream, they are utilizing satire... they are saying.. we wont let you have a HOMOgeneous ice cream cone until the government lets people have HOMOgeneous relationships.

Seriously, its really clever

If that's the way they are going may the force be with them, but they had better make sure that John Q public gets it.

The grand flaw in the strategy is that the customers are not making the decision.
Potentially, the government has the luxury of not caring whether people get two scoops of icecream or not.

one should ask for cream, you know , the cream from her... and demand it be with real sugar, not an artificial sweetener.
