Tesco Burgers by Loretto on 16 January 2013 3:59pm
A recent nutritional study has discovered that Tesco burgers are surprisingly low in fat, but high in Shergar.

So an objection to eating horse is common in our society. Why? Is it because of the beauty of a horse? Using that line of logic a snake might be tasty...or a Turkey Vulture...or a rat, or __________________.

I'm reading a book that says turtles have lovely meat.

Oh-Oh! Just checked the sell-buy date on my Tesco Burgers... Out of date!

What would you say if the burgers had contained traces of dog or cat meat?
Re: Tesco Burgers by Lounge Trekker on 17 January 2013 5:46am
Cut it up small, mix it with vegetables and soy sauce and serve it as meow mein?

Make sure you pick all the hair out of that hot dog.

At least horses are vegetarian, whereas cats are carnivores and dogs will eat potentially eat anything. If they eat too much, they might eat it again. Hmmm...horse doesn't sound too bad when I think about it.

It is funny how we screw our noses up at the thought of eating certain animals yet we don't bat an eyelid at killing and eating others! Some we dn't want to even consider eating because they appear dirty or yukky in some way (rat!! slug!!!) and others because we love them (guinea pig, horse etc).

Personally I get quite upset at the thought of any animal being killed, whether for food or not. I am ashamed to say this doesn't stop me enjoying steak, chops etc etc - I have to tell myself the pre-wrapped joint in the supermarket has nothing to do with the animal in the field!!

Years ago we were in Turkey during Kurban Bayrami, and our friend had a ram tied up outside his hotel - I couldn't look the ram in the eye knowing the next day he was for ritual slaughter!!

It is interesting what different cultures will consider great food and other food awful.

Went into my local German discount food shop today, they had their own Burger brand..
My Lidl Pony......

Went into Tescos, bought a Litre Bottle of Morgans, A litre Bottle of Bacardi, and a Box of Burgers. So, got som Dark Rum, Some White Rum...
and some Red Rum.

On a serious note, I have eaten Horsemeat, Dogmeat, Kangeroo, Emu, Ostritch, Snake.. There is probably little I would not TRY. Its the Method of despatch I might have an issue with.
