(Newser) – Ben & Jerry's wants the porn industry to keep its Schweddy Balls away from its trademark. The beloved ice cream company is suing the makers of the "Ben & Cherry's" series of X-rated films, which includes such classics as, Boston Cream Thigh, Peanut Butter D-Cup, and New York Fat & Chunky, the AP reports. The lawsuit says that riffing off such "well-known and iconic" Ben & Jerry's flavors in "exploitative, hardcore pornographic films" infringes on its trademarks, and is likely to cause "confusion, mistake, or deception."

The publicity got me to order up a slew of their porn films for my family. Better those, than wasting money on crappy, overpriced ice cream!
