How in God’s name did I miss this?

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 21, 2010 – Geeknet, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNUX), the online network for the global geek community, announces its public apology to the National Pork Board for unintended confusion surrounding unicorn meat versus pork.

Recently, the National Pork Board issued a “cease and desist” warning to ThinkGeek, a Geeknet company and the premier retailer for the global geek community, regarding its April 1 product launch of canned unicorn meat, which can be seen at http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/looflirpa/.

“It was never our intention to cause a national crisis and misguide American citizens regarding the differences between the pig and the unicorn,” said Scott Kauffman, President and CEO of Geeknet. “In fact, ThinkGeek’s canned unicorn meat is sparkly, a bit red, and not approved by any government entity.”

I need to not get out of the house more, clearly.

Tanjit, I was hoping for the Squeez Bacon.

I mean, OK, I can see why lots of people might actually want to buy the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag that ThinkGeek mocked up for April Fool’s Day: I can also understand why TG might look upon this notion with stereotypical dollar signs in their eyes.  But bacon from a squeeze bottle is marketing gold, friends. I would buy that stuff so fast it’d make your head spin.

And then I’d make sure my wife never, ever found out.
