(What) Were They Thinking?

A cease and desist letter from the National Pork Board, protesting ThinkGeek's April 1, 2010 offer of canned Unicorn Meat (“the new white meat”) has produced the predictable and hilarious result.

Alas, they've only put the first page of the cease and desist letter online.

    We get paid $100 per hour from the Pork Board, so let’s spend an hour on this joke site, have some fun, and then order out for Free Pizza.

    What’cha Think ?

    I seriously doubt the author of this letter got paid only $100 per hour.
