TMB Condemns Foul-Mouthed Tirade

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle today condemned as “unacceptable” controversial tripe entrepreneur Brian Eyre’s foul-mouthed outburst at a customer, as reported in yesterday’s East Lancashire Chronicle.

According to the Chronicle, when Mrs Edna Sharples asked for another plastic bag when her bag split, Mr Eyre, 58, is alleged to have said, “Do you think I’m f*****g made of money, you silly old cow.”

Mrs Sharples, 86, who has been a customer of Mr Eyre for over 40 years, was said to be too distressed to talk to the press yesterday.

This is not the first time the controversial entrepreneur, who owns a string of tripe stalls at markets across the north-west, has been in the news for his unusual approach to customer relations. He once described his customers as “t***s.”

Sir Norman said today, “This sort of thing is just not acceptable in this day and age, particularly in the current economic climate when we need every customer we can get. The TMB utterly condemns ageism in any shape or form. I would like to assure the public that Mr Eyre is not typical of tripe retailers. I have today sent Mrs Sharples a pound of fresh honeycomb with the compliments of the Tripe Marketing Board.”
