PISTOL CREEK JUNCTION — A local company has filed suit against English entrepreneur and billionaire Sir Richard Branson.

MF141123 - BransonAccording to papers filed yesterday with the Calabash County Clerk of Courts, RK Meat Packing is accusing the flamboyant businessman, best known as the founder of the Virgin Group of over four hundred companies, of industrial espionage, patent infringement and copyright violations.

“The bottom line is that limey scoundrel is a recipe rustler,” explained the plaintiff’s attorney, Steve Dallas. “He directed his minions to steal my client’s formulations for test tube beef.”

Branson recently announced the formation of Virgin Carnivore to provide laboratory-grown meat and meat by-products for consumers who refuse to eat anything with a face.

“We believe that the majority of vegetarians and vegans suffer their diet from philosophical and ethical underpinnings, rather than any rational medical necessity,” said Virgin Carnivore spokesman Sir Angus Flankstake. “And now through the miracles of modern science, they, too, can enjoy a delicious sirloin.”

The creation of test tube beef involves the growing, incubating and bulking up of stem cells harvested from bovine MF141123 - Test Tube Beermuscles. It is then combined with separately grown fat cells to create edible cuts of beef.

Virgin’s ‘ethical meat’ will also be kinder to the environment than the real thing, reduce animal suffering, eliminate feed lot odors and help feed the world’s burgeoning population, though the landscaping industry has decried the loss of cow dung for use as fertilizer.

Flankstake dismissed Dallas’s accusations as “blatantly absurd,” claiming that British university professors have long been at the forefront of artificial livestock production research.

“I might buy it, if they had invented test tube mutton,” countered Dallas. “But this is America and we invented cowboys — and real ones, too.”

RK Meat Packing of Pistol Creek Junction is one of the nation’s leading suppliers of hot dogs and beef products to public schools, universities, professional sports venues and convenience stores.

Cleveland, 1977 — Grappling with a foreign policy crisis, the U.S. government identifies and targets a hapless rock-and-roller as a Russian spy in a classic case of mistaken identity for an innocent, ordinary, ‘Wrong Man’ hero . . . . or is he?  Unlike any novel you have ever read, this one has a soundtrack. After all, a story whose characters are musicians should have . . . . well . . . . music. Right?

Clear and Present Dangers . . . . Barack Obama

“You didn’t build that.”

~President Barack Obama

 

Memo to ILLEGAL Immigrants

To paraphrase President Barack Obama, Senator Elizabeth Warren and President John F. Kennedy:

You didn’t get here on your own… If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that you now want for free.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve gotten into this country—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

But I want to be clear. You move here on the roads the rest of us paid for. You are safe because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You don’t have to worry that marauding bands will come and seize you or your things because of the work the rest of us did. You don’t have to worry about feeding or caring for your kids, because of the work the rest of us did.

Ask not what our country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

Never confuse a politician’s promise with reality

Never confuse an administration’s policy with the will of the people.

And never confuse mere sand and soil for the soul of a nation.

PS to Barry & Liz:  WTF?
