'Mission Accomplished!' says TMB chairman

The Tripe Marketing Board has today reached its target of raising £200 from the sale of its 2015 Diary for the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Announcing the achievement, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "I would like to thank everyone who has purchased a copy of our diary.  When we made it available to the general public we little thought it would prove so popular!"

Speaking from the TMB offices in Preston today, a relaxed Sir Norman went on to say: "This afternoon, we calculated that - thanks to tripe lovers - we've raised £207 in a little over five weeks.  In fact, from our initial stock we've only got three copies left".

The TMB 2015 Diary has become the fastest-selling meat-based marketing board diary in history.  Sir Norman derided claims in the December issue of the industry journal Offal Monthly that the diary was little more than a 'thinly-veiled catalogue for TMB Books'.

"We may have mentioned one or two of our other books in passing, but we've yet to receive a single complaint about it," he said.
