TMB chairman challenges Amazon over classification

The Tripe Marketing Board has complained to internet retailer Amazon, after its 2015 Diary has been categorised as 'Humour: Parody' in its sales ranking charts.

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "Ideally, our Diary should classified under a 'Meat: Offal: Almanac' category, but it appears that no such category exists.  It's not at all clear to me how we will ever get a best-seller under these circumstances".

Head of publishing at TMB Books, Doreen Gray, said: "It's not all bad news.  Our recently published Tales from the Till is doing very well in the 'Retail' category and quite respectably in the 'Business: Humour' charts, but until Amazon relent and introduce more meat-based categories, our Diary is always going to struggle to break through".
