Today is for stomachs.
World Tripe Day, to be exact.
So says the Tripe Marketing Board and its chairman Sir Norman Wrassle.
“When I first mooted the idea of an international observance day for tripe ten years ago, my colleagues in the offal industry said it could never happen” Sir Norman said. “Well, we beat heart, liver and spleen to it by a long chalk!”
Tripe, for the non-farmers out there, is the lining of the large stomach of ruminating animals. It is a part of the animal multitudes around the world enjoy to eat. I’m sure that is true around the Key Peninsula as well.
Question is, do you have the guts to try tripe?
“I hope everyone has an enjoyable day” Sir Norman said. “And that they buy some tripe, obviously.”
Now you know.
It is currently 48 degrees and sun breaks is the forecast for the day. But be ready for another deluge over the weekend. We are definitely in autumn.
Good morning Longbranch.
