Alabama Leads the Way

Cycles Gladiator Wine Banned: Alabama Bans Nude Nymph Wine Label, Increases Its Sales: "Alabama's ban on a wine that features a nude nymph on the label became a business opportunity for a California vintner who is preparing a marketing campaign to capitalize on being 'Banned in Bama.'

The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board recently told stores and restaurants to quit serving Cycles Gladiator wine because of the label. Board attorney Bob Martin said the stylized, art-nouveau rendition of a nude female with a flying bicycle violated Alabama rules against displaying 'a person posed in an immoral or sensuous manner.'"

In a world where we have wall-to-wall nekkid women whenever anyone cares to look (and pay) for them on the internet, I don't think too many people are going to be corrupted by a wine label!

Maybe they should put her on the bottle.

Gotta sell.
