There's nothing wrong w a pun from time to time. What a bunch of prudes!  If ya have this shirt, you've got yourself a collector's item. Adidas will stop selling World Cup products that used sex appeal to promote host Brazil, a move that came after a formal complaint from the local government on Tuesday.

Adidas made the announcement just hours after Brazil's tourism board released a statement condemning some T-shirts that were being sold on the company's web site, including one which said "Lookin' to Score," with a woman in bikini in front of the word "Brazil" and an image of the Sugar Loaf mountain in the background.

Another said "I (heart) Brazil," with what appeared to be the image of a thong bikini inside the heart.

Adidas, a World Cup sponsor and supplier of the official ball for the tournament, said in a statement the products were limited edition T-shirts available only in the United States.

"Adidas always pays close attention to the opinion of its consumers and partners," the company said. "Therefore, it is announcing that these products will not be sold anymore."
