TMB denies pandering to Greeks and Christians

The Tripe Marketing Board has reacted angrily to accusations that it is pandering to Christians and Greeks by promoting an Easter Tripe Soup recipe on its website.

Pizza Mageiritsa? No - it's a popular Easter soup!
The claim was made by militant atheist vegans at a meeting in Hebden Bridge earlier today.  Responding to the suggestion, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle told Tim Lovelace of the Lancashire Radio show Tea Time With Tim: "It's preposterous for anyone to think that we only want Greek people and Christians to eat tripe at Easter - we want them to eat tripe all year round."  Sir Norman went on to add that using the term 'Easter Tripe' was merely a 'seasonal marketing ploy' to draw people's attention to what is a popular soup in many parts of Greece at this time of year.

"It's actually called Mageiritsa - so it sounds a bit like a tasty Italian pizza.  Who knows - it might one day be as popular, too!" Sir Norman said.
