I received the following press release today, and had the compunction to share with you, our dear PlusPoint reader, this one example of the vast amounts of ridiculous nonsense our public relations counterparts fill our inboxes with each day.
Local Business Donates Truckload of Pork Rinds to Birmingham
Southern Recipe, Dallas-based and the world’s largest manufacturer of pork rinds, and is donating $10,000 of their signature snack to The Today Show’s Lend a Hand Tour in Birmingham, AL. Southern Recipe is sending volunteers to help with the secret pork rind delivery as a surprise to the Alabama Soup Kitchen to aid the tornado disaster relief.

Yes, Southern Recipe thinks that the one item victims of the recent storms need is pork rinds.
