Because We All Know the Dangers of Counterfeit Vodka

New Years news that makes you go Hmmm:

Russia introduced on Friday a minimum price of vodka in an effort to fight counterfeit alcohol production in the country. From January 1, any 0.5l vodka bottle selling at below 89 rubles (almost $3) will be outlawed.

Okay, so I know that alcoholism is a huge problem in the former Soviet states and alcohol production needs to be regulated. But is it just me, or does the phrase "counterfeit alcohol" make anyone else giggle?
