WEIRD FACT OF THE DAY
YOGURT

YOGURT

In 2006, the Supreme Court in South Korea upheld a lower court ruling convicting a dairy executive for an obscene event after three models had staged a nude performance with yogurt at a crowded Seoul art gallery in 2003.

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

The court ruled that the performance "was obscene as the event's main purpose was commercial and it went beyond the point necessary to promote the product."
