Tripe lovers urged to act fast to avoid disappointment on Tripe Tuesday

Tripe retailers across the country have been preparing for the second annual 'Tripe Tuesday' tomorrow - the annual day of the year when most tripe is sold.

First initiated by the Tripe Marketing Board in 1979 as 'Tripe Thursday', the idea was quickly dropped when it failed to stimulate sales.  However, the success for many retailers of 'Black Friday' last year convinced the TMB that the time was ripe to re-launch the initiative.

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said that Tripe Tuesday was just what the industry needed in the run-up to Christmas.  Speaking at a media conference at Preston earlier today, Sir Norman said: "We've taken the precaution of asking tripe retailers to stock up to avoid disappointed customers - these prices can't last forever!"
