Art Criticism Hits the Shelves

Why didn't I think of this? I've done this in the past with ketchup bottles and -given the slam that I gave Woods for his infidelity- guess I should give credit to the street artist who came up with this:

Tiger Woods "Unfaithful" Gatorade labels trigger federal probe

The appearance of Gatorade bottles featuring photos of Tiger Woods and his wife, labelled "Unfaithful" have alerted U.S. food safety authorities.

Several of the tampered bottles of the famed golfer and wife Elin Nordegren have been spotted in the Denver, Colo. area, reports KUSA TV.

The television network spotted an e-mail address hidden in the labels' small print, and fingered Jason Kay of Longmont, Colo., who said he helped a pal with the labels. Kay described the stunt as a "pop art" project.

There were reportedly 1,000 bottles with the "Unfaithful" labels.

KUSA says food and drug administration investigators are probing the incident to see if the drink has been adulterated along with the labels. Federal tampering charges could be laid even if the drink itself has been unaffected, said the network.
