Chicks in bikinis protest MTA vodka ad ban

Georgi-ad

In what could be described as the best protest of all time, women in bikinis this week rabbled against the New York City transit system's ban of bikini-themed Georgi vodka ads from various bus routes in Brooklyn. Religious communities in that borough were apparently offended by the butt shots in the ads, but protesters claim (wrongly, but whatever) that the ban violates the First Amendment. Georgi spokesman Todd Shapiro was thrilled and perhaps slightly turned on by the protest, as he described "50 girls pointing their backsides at the MTA ... basically telling them to 'butt' out." It is indeed a great day for freedom, and if they want to make a regular thing out of this, no one's complaining.
