ThinkGeek is notorious for their funny yet fake products.  One of my favorites is their Canned Unicorn Meat.  The slogan they threw in with it is “Unicorn – the new white meat”.  Well you probably know of the pork slogan, “the other white meat”.  Going to a whole new level of stupidity, the Pork Board became royally pissed off that ThinkGeek’s slogan was a tiny bit too similar.  Being the way the world is, instead of just shutting up and dealing with it, they sent off a cease and desist letter.

The letter came straight from Faegre & Benson legal firm and ordered them to stop with the slogan.  Thankfully ThinkGeek’s fake product is actually protected  as a parody, since it’s quite obviously not a real product.  Then again, perhaps the Pork Board is terrified that someone has truly discovered that there are shiny new unicorns in the world.
