Court Upholds Obscene Yogurt Conviction

SEOUL, South Korea -- The Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling convicting a dairy executive for an obscene event promoting his company's yogurt, a news report said Thursday.

The court upheld a lower court fine of 5 million won ($5,000) for the executive, identified by his family name Kang, Yonhap news agency reported, citing the top court's ruling.

It also upheld fines of between 500,000 won ($500) and 2 million won ($2,000) on three models for staging a nude performance with the yogurt at a crowded Seoul art gallery in 2003, Yonhap said.

The models, caked in wheat flour, used spray devices to squirt each other with yogurt, which washed off the flour to expose their bodies, Yonhap reported.

According to Yonhap, the court said the performance "was obscene as the event's main purpose was commercial and it went beyond the point necessary to promote the product."

Officials at the Supreme Court could not be reached after hours Thursday.

How many nude models covered in flour would be necessary to promote the product?

Seems very unsanitary to me, anyway.

I can't make any judgement. I missed the act. It could have had some artistically redeeming features, for all I know.

A few thousand in fines, and a few hundred thousand worth of publicity.

LOL! Not enough to overcome the commercial purpose, according to the court :-).

Learned the sad lesson last week that kim chee can spoil.

< |:(~

(yes, yes, I know -- "how do you tell?")

A gallon jar's worth without preservatives is simply too much for one man to finish.
