Party Like It's 1936

"The first British Wimbledon Champion in 77 years heralds a new dawn for tripe," Tripe Marketing Board chairman, Sir Norman Wrassle said today and he advised tripe retailers to stock up on supplies as a jubilant nation celebrated Andy Murray's victory in the Men's Final this afternoon.

"Many lovers of tripe will remember watching when Fred Perry last achieved success at tennis for Britain and I have no doubt that seeing Mr Murray's victory today will have stirred nostalgic memories of tripe," said Sir Norman, speaking from his Centre Court seat this afternoon. 

He had hoped to ask Mr Murray whether he attributed his stamina to eating tripe as a child - which many athletes and sporting greats have done - but was unable to reach the champion due to the sheer numbers in the throng.  Sir Norman said: "I also wanted to present Andy with a Tripe Marketing Board pen to celebrate his victory, but security guards prevented me from approaching him."
