Bad Elf Banned

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A constitutional battle is brewing
over a holiday beer that state officials are trying to ban because they
say its label might entice children to drink.
The state believes it would be really awful for kids to see the label
on the British import Seriously Bad Elf.

It shows a mean-looking elf with a slingshot firing Christmas ornaments
at Santa’s sleigh as it flies overhead.

The state Liquor Control Division notified Massachusetts-based Shelton
Brothers distributors that it was rejecting its application to sell the
beer, a bitter winter ale brewed at the Ridgeway Brewery in England.
