Unicorn, the other white meat?
PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) — It’s official: The National Pork Board says it knows unicorns don’t exist.

The industry group says it was only protecting its trademark when it issued cease-and-desist warning to online retailer ThinkGeek for calling a fake unicorn meat product “the new white meat.”

The fictional canned meat, described as an “excellent source of sparkles,” was an April Fool’s prank.

But the 12-page letter from a law firm was no joke.

In a public apology this week, ThinkGeek said its nonexistent canned unicorn meat is sparkly, a bit red and not approved by any government entity.

“We certainly understand that unicorns don’t exist,” said Ceci Snyder, vice president of marketing for the National Pork Board. “Yes, it’s funny. But if you don’t respond, you are opening your trademark up to challenges.”
