Feel the Homomentum!

Or rather, taste the homomentum: Ben and Jerry's is renaming* their popular Chubby Hubby flavor for the month of September to honor Vermont's first legal same-sex marriages:

Vermont begins issuing marriage licenses to gay couples today.
A Ben and Jerry's wedding truck will cross Vermont, from which free Hubby Hubby will be handed out to the public.
Congratulations to all the newlyweds!

*Clarification: the ice cream will be renamed in Vermont scoop shops, but tubs of the flavor nationwide will not be relabeled for logistical reasons. The article I linked says, "Hubby Hubby will be available across Vermont in Ben & Jerry's parlours but Chubby Hubby tubs will not be officially renamed across the US. If this were to take place, the process would take the company another 18 months to revise and finalise." Just pointing that out for non-Vermont Shakers who wanted to run right out and buy some Hubby Hubby!
