TMB declares amnesty on offal puns to celebrate World Tripe Day

The Tripe Marketing Board has suspended its campaign to eradicate offal puns in social media.  With just two days to go before World Tripe Day, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said it would be wrong to capitalise on people's sense of fun as the big day approached.

Speaking at a civic reception in Madrid last night, Sir Norman described the TMB's strategy to reduce offal puns  as its most successful yet. "Over £1000 has been raised through donations to our charity partner, the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society.  We are grateful to all those who have donated during the course of the year, but now is the time to relax a little and celebrate tripe for what it is," he said.

Sir Norman's hectic programme of engagements in the run up to 24 October include visits to some of Madrid's largest abattoirs.  He plans to spend World Tripe Day itself by touring offal retailers in the city, prior to the gala dinner to celebrate Madrid's Festival of Tripe.

"I hope everyone has a fantastic time on Monday - I know I will," he said.
