The Tripe Marketing Board and Gay Rights

The Tripe Marketing Board has clarified its position on the subject of gay rights after it failed to attend today's Liverpool Pride celebrations.

The Tripe Girls
Chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: “The tripe brand has traditionally stood for old-fashioned values such as hard work, thrift and corporal punishment.   Normally we only attend events such as steam engine rallies, agricultural shows and Crufts.  However, in a break with tradition I was persuaded last year that we must move with the times and bring the Tripe Marketing Board kicking and screaming into twentieth century. That was why we were delighted to attend Liverpool Pride 2013 as we realise we must embrace all sections of the community, particularly those which have high disposable incomes”.

Sir Norman apologised that a prior engagement kept him away from today's celebrations in
Liverpool. "I hear it was a bit damp, but if I didn't already have a diary date to speak at the Longridge Women's Institute this afternoon, I can assure you I would have been there". 

Disappointingly, gay icons The Tripe Girls, who were scheduled to appear today,  had to cancel at the last minute when the senior matron at their St Annes nursing home refused to agree to them leaving for the day.
