Alabama Bans Wine With Naked Nymph On Label

We read:
"Alabama doesn't want any images of naked flying nymphs hanging off bicycles on the labels of wine bottles sold in the state and that's just the way it is. Might give people the wrong idea. Who knows what folks might start trying on bicycles?

So the state's liquor control board has banned a California wine called Cycles Gladiator because its label uses an Art Nouveau image that once graced the posters of a turn-of-the-century French bicycle manufacturer. So "Fat Bastard" wine is OK but if you think you're going to sell a wine with an artful nude on the label in Alabama, you're just whistling Dixie.

As for Hahn Family Wines in Soledad, Calif., the state's move has been a marketing godsend.


So have a laugh at those Alabama hicks. The sophisticates of NYC would never sink that low, would they? See below.

Why do we need a state liquor control board in the first place? That's a remnant for prohibition and their removal is long overdue.

Bobby, who ever heard of doing away with a bureaucracy just because it's old, unnecessary, corrupt, useless, and incompetent?

Now here's a question for you. If you put all those board members together, how many teeth do you think they have?

Think this situation's bad?

Imagine what life would be like if the Confederacy had won the Civil war!

Wait One...There is an up-side

If that were the case The Messaih wouldn't be sitting on the throne in Washington. He's be picking cotton somewhere in Eastern North Carolina.

---They're not perfect, but they're still a heck a lot better than the secular left. At least they let you keep your guns. :)

That's right, 3:30 PM, I would rather live in Mississippi than in New York. In Mississippi your rent/mortgage is low, taxes are low, the people are polite and if you don't get in their face, they live you alone.

New York is overrated. They call themselves "the center of the universe." Seriously.
