Pork Industry Apparently Can't Take A Joke
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
The online store Think Geek on April Fool's Day invented a fake product. It's called Canned Unicorn Meat. The slogan: The new white meat. The National Pork Board still hasn't gotten the joke. It recently sent the website a 12-page cease-and-desist letter for copying its slogan: The other white meat. The ad is still up, but Think Geek has apologized for misleading anyone about the differences between pigs and unicorns.
It's MORNING EDITION.
