According to the New York Times, the National Pork Board has officially sent ThinkGeek a cease and desist letter, asking them to stop using the phrase ‘the new white meat’ when promoting their Unicorn Meat product. A product, by the way, that is about as real as the My Little Pony I used to turn into as a child – or at least, thought I was turning into.
Turns out, subjecting a toilet paper tube to a hurricane of glitter glue, putting it on your head and calling it a horn does not a unicorn make. And apparently, much to the surprise of the National Pork Board, ThinkGeek doesn’t actually make – or sell – unicorn meat either. Which means the National Pork Board really doesn’t have to worry about anyone horning in on its business any time soon.
And by the way, since we’re talking about unicorns, I can’t resist including a clip from my favorite childhood movie of all time. . .
