Alabama bans wine cuz there's a nekked lady on the label


Good grief. Cycles Gladiator wine is verboten in Alabama because the label features "a person poised in an immoral or sensuous manner."

Lorrie Rodgers of
Hahn Family Estates, the California company that makes the wine, told Examiner.com:
"There's been quite the momentum and excitement [after the ban in Alabama]. It's very interesting as the label is art and comes from a very famous French lithograph from 1895. The bicycle represents freedom and there are only a few of the original lithographs left and from what I've been told they sell for approximately $50,000 each."

Ignorance - that is all I can say about the state of Alabama and it's antiquated thought process.
