Contrary to popular belief, New York's zealously moral mayor did not ban the sale of sex-related materials - there must have been some messy question of constitutionality. The new rules merely state that at least 60% of a store's merchandise must be wholesome. In response, Michael Moore opened the Rudy Giuliani Gift Shop and Sex Emporium in Times Square. 60% of the material in the store consisted of memorabilia related to the mayor. The rest of the goods were sex toys, not a few of which also featured Giuliani's mug. Moore even had a couple of NYPD cops in the store. He informed them that the store was completely legal, and offered to sell them a plunger.

I have no idea if the store still exists, but I'd love to find out.
