TMB to get rid of Tripe Girls before conventions in response to darts ban

The Tripe Marketing Board has announced that it will no longer use Tripe Girls as the practice of having scantily clad women standing in front of tripe stalls "does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms."

A statement issued by the TMB on Wednesday read: "The TMB will end the long-standing practice of using walk-on Tripe Girls, commencing with the start of the 2018 Offal Processors Convention in Burnley later this year."

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said "We consider the time spent by tripe retailers at the convention as one of celebration, where guests and various performers can add to the glamour and spectacle of the event, enabling promoters and partners to showcase their countries and products." 

The decision comes just days after the Professional Darts Corporation announced it will no longer use walk-on girls to accompany players on their way to the stage, although this has since been revealed as a ruling made by television broadcasters.

Sir Norman paid tribute to the work of the current group of Tripe Girls over the last two decades, but said they were now something of an anachronism adding "In any case, the individuals involved had expressed a desire to spend more time with their grandchildren."
