Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has condemned author JK Rowling’s statement that tripe is his least favourite food.
Sir Norman said: “Mr Rowling’s statement undoes at a stroke our work rebuilding tripe’s reputation as a food for the 21st century. It is particularly ironic that one of the characters in one of the Harry Porter books is called Magenta Tripe. It seems to me that Mr Rowling has built his reputation on the back of tripe’s good name and rather than acknowledge this has launched a vicious and unwarranted attack which will take many years to put right. I appeal to Mr Rowling to either withdraw this remark immediately or make a substantial donation to the TMB’s marketing budget so that we can begin to repair the damage he has done.”
