Tripe - The Food Of Olympic Champions
Back in January this year, in an interview with The Guardian, athletics golden girl Jessica Ennis said that her mother fed her liquidised tripe when she was a baby. Twenty five years later she wins the gold medal in the heptathlon at the London 2012 Olympic games with a British and Commonwealth record score of 6,955 points. To us the connection is clear. Liquidised tripe is the food of Olympic champions. If you’re looking for a lucrative three-figure sponsorship deal, Jess, just get in touch. (PS in the interview you describe liquidized tripe as “minging” and “disgusting.” You really should have tried it with a sprig of parsley and a dash of lemon. Yummy).
