ODD: Unicorn Meat

PORTLAND, Ore. (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."

ThinkGeek put the fictional item on its Web site as an April Fool's prank. But the 12-page letter from lawyers was no joke.

ThinkGeek issued an apology this week but says the board was being "pig-headed."
