Mormon Church Pissed Over Five Wives Vodka

Mormon Church Pissed Over Five Wives Vodka

The Mormon church is steamed up over a brand of vodka dubbed Five Wives, so much so that they've gotten it banned in Idaho State liquor stores. As everyone knows, Mormons don't drink, and they certainly don't practice polygamy anymore, the church has been quick to point out (uh, what about Big Love?). Polygamy Porter beer is still for sale in Idaho, so Five Wives' maker, Ogden's Own Distillery, finds the snub unfair; they've launched a "Free the Five Wives" campaign in revolt. Anyway, free publicity, right? If you're curious, there's video about the vodka below. [NYDN]
