TMB chairman advises boycott of Offal Monthly

The Tripe Marketing Board has hit back at the editors of Offal Monthly, the trade journal for offal producers, after the magazine dismissed the TMB's issuing of its Annual Report & Accounts on Kindle as 'gimmicky' in today's issue.

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "If it's a gimmick to seek to widen the appeal of tripe by making our Annual Report available to the wider general public, then we plead 'guilty as charged'.  Quite frankly, I've had enough of Offal Monthly's carping and endless snide remarks about tripe. We get better press with the vegetarians than we do with our own trade journal."

Sir Norman said he would be advising tripe lovers to boycott the magazine, which over recent months had featured glowing reports on spleen, heart and lung, but not one positive feature on tripe. "If we had the funds, we would ensure a much wider circulation of our own TRIPE magazine, which at least gives a balanced view of our product," Sir Norman said.
