TFA: "The fast food chain, which has more than 500 UK outlets, had earlier given a series of 'absolute assurances' that its products were not involved."

Sir, is Burger King adding horse meat to burgers?

"In news sure to nauseate all day
A fast food titan lost its way
Though quite brief, it was coarse-
They were actually serving horse-

What a waste of perfectly good horsemeat and beef. I mean really. It's not as if horsemeat is poisonous. It is probably less poisonous than regular hormone and antiobiotic-laden beef. And having seen a few Whoppers in my time, I expect that horse meat can only improve them.

For all I care, they could put kangaroo in the burgers. (That's the next big thing--Australians are about to discover that they've been eating a combination of emu, roo, and lamb as "beef" for years--which probably explains why Australian life-expectancy is so much better than American, British or Canadian life expectancy.)

Isn't horse lean meat? You might be getting some performance-enhancing drugs from the horses that lose races, but then again you might not. There's probably more drugs in the horses that win races.

I insist on horsemeat in my fast food burgers!

And don't forget the emu, roo, lamb, moose, deer, and rabbits.


Have you ever had rabbit? Tastes like duck.

Could be worse. Could be road kill. Which is what I suspect they have been adding to fast food burgers in North America, seeing as the horse meat goes into pet food.
