SCHWETTY BALLS



Since I first posted this two years ago the clip has been removed from Blip.TV and Youtube. It is now only hosted at Hulu.

This is my favorite SNL skit and it is so appropriate since it is the holiday season and all.

Fact or myth: I once heard a story about Isiah Samual Schwetty. He was known as "Grandpa Schwetty" to all those that knew him. His claim to fame was having the "Originals". Grandpa Schwetty was a good Catholic and shared his Schwetty balls with all the priest in the parish. Priest would stand in line for hours just to get a lick of Grandpa Schwettys balls. The "originals" were huge and every year they would hold a fund raiser to see who could get the entire Schwetty ball in ones mouth. There was also a contest to see which priest could get the most Schwetty balls in their mouth. Year after year the same priest won the ribbon for his ability to get the entire Schwetty ball in his mouth. Others would line up trying to learn his technique. Finally all the other priest devised a plan to unseat the repeat winner. They asked Samuel Isiah Schwetty if he had any "smaller Schwetty balls". A plan devised, all the priest were thrilled when they discovered smaller, untouched Schwetty balls. All the priest in the congregation all agreed the smaller the Schwetty ball the sweeter. This worked out great and they did unseat the repeat winner but eventually the Boston Parish caught wind of this and thought they were taking advantage of the smaller, sweeter Schwetty balls and made them stop using them for the contest. So now every year Isiah Samuel Schwetty can be seen dragging his big-o-sack of Schetty balls to the contest. Although if you sneak quietly and carefully down the dark cold corridors of your local Parish priests can still be found to be enjoying those sweet suculant small "Schwetty balls".

Now I must say: I am NOT catholic so dont know if this story is true or not. I also cant say if I think it offensive to repeat. But.. What I can say is I cant believe its true for I cant imagine an entire religious organization condoning, and or hiding the fact that priest (those called by God) would ever consider takind advantage of a situation by abusing "Young Schwetty Balls"

And one of the things I have enjoyed about being an International Service Manager is the oppurtunity to sample Schwetty Balls from many diferent countries. Interesting how each country has its own unique taste. French for example smell like the utensils to create them have never been washed. Italians have a hint of basil. Spanish tend to be a bit hot and spicey. Those from Israel are cut just right. Germans Schwetty balls seem to be my favorite as they usually are more substantial and it only takes one to get full. But I must admit even with all the world traveling I do I agree with Dorothy. There really is no place like home. I believe my own very special schwetty balls are my favorite. The nice thing is they are always available when ever I want. In the morning with breakfast, in the evening when sitting quietly sipping my favorite beverage. My favorite would have to be at brunch. There quite honestly is nothing lovelier than a couple of Schwetty balls in the afternoon! I like to call them a Schwetty ball Nooner! OH the glory of having Schwetty balls! I feel sorry for those that have never had them. Oh and I do enjoy them after running a marathon! Nothing like Schwetty balls at the finish line. What an insentive!!
Wow just thinking about them I suddenly have an "itch" for them.

Happy New Year and "Power to the Schwetty Balls"!!!
