#090 The new white meat

You'd think selling sparkly Canned Unicorn Meat on April first being a gag was quiiiite obvious, but no. Lawyers from the American Pork Board have proven they apparently have too much time on their hands and/or sit on their sense of humour waiting with baited breath for intellectual property violations. (One would suggest getting out more)

Published on the Canned Unicorn Meat - with the byline 'the new white meat' - seems to have the Pork board lawyers with their knickers in a twist about the fact it comes so close to their trademarked registration of 'The other white meat' hahaha *slaps forehead* The first page of their twelve page cease and desist letter below (click to enlarge)

From thinkgeek's heartfelt apologetic press release

"It was never our intention to cause a national crisis and misguide American citizens regarding the differences between the pig and the unicorn," said Scott Kauffman, President and CEO of Geeknet. "In fact, ThinkGeek's canned unicorn meat is sparkly, a bit red, and not approved by any government entity."

I'd totally eat Unicorn meat just to shit rainbows..
