International group Unilever seems of the opinion that associations with anal sex, violent murders, blasphemy and dismembered bodies could be detrimental to the reputation of its Chunky Monkey Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream brand.

It is threatening to sue the makers of a new film, entitled Chunky Monkey – dubbed ‘Abigail’s Party on acid’ – unless its makers change the title and remove all references to the frozen dessert.
