downstairs: Gotcha.  I guess I'm in the same boat- I could never eat dog... but I just never thought the same about horses.  (And my mother in law has a miniature horse.)

So, hors d'oeuvres then?

That's good. I hate horses. I hate the way that they stare at you sideways with their huge, squishy looking eyeball and always try to touch you with their gross, floppy lips. I spend actual time and energy hating horses. I'd punch a horse right in its stupid face if one was here right now.

Apik0r0s: gadian: downstairs: TuteTibiImperes: naughtyrev: If people in this country would just get over their "but I wanted a pony when I was a kid!" attitude and start eating horse, this wouldn't be a problem.

This. Horse meat is supposedly very tasty. The French eat it, and I think that their judgement should be trusted in all matters culinary.

I'm curious what the issue is with eating horse meat?  Wiki didn't give me a good understanding, just explaining its taboo, and even illegal in some places.  Is it merely because we consider them "pets"?

They're work animals.  You don't eat your work animals.

What, are you Hindu?

I had horse, unknowingly, in Basque country. After that, I had it knowingly. Not deluded by anthropomorphism.

Don't anthropomorphise animals, they hate that.

Kahabut: No, but I learned at a very young age that horses are evil farkers, along with most other farm animals. Dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle.

I've never walked behind a horse in my life, and I rarely go near the front either (anymore). Seen one too many people seriously injured by a pissed off horse. Never did understand the attitude of the humans that were trying to get the horse to do something. It's bigger than you, and not happy about what you are doing, you might want to reconsider

Some can be monumental assholes, I'll give you that. My dad's were quite mellow. Big-ass draft horses. Mine, on the other hand, wasn't so delightful. I had finished cleaning a back hoof when a fly gave him a nice bite on the arse. As soon as I put his hoof down - KABLAMMOMYTE.

I forgave him, of course. But, I never forgave that godforsaken rooster, Frank, who spurred me the next day.

Ever dropkick a rooster? Satisfying.

So ship all the horses to France. Win-win.

Let's eat wilber

It's easy just loose the comma.

will not list the various "non food" animals I've eaten, it's a long list
 a youth spent in many different countries/cultures will teach you :
 If it's organic someone somewhere thinks it's tasty
it doesn't matter if it's animal  or vegetable cases in point,  the balut and the durian

Kimothy: My personal dislike for these two women doesn't help, but I'm of the opinion that they should be rounded up and sold to whomever wants to slaughter them and sell the parts off.

That's pretty harsh, dude.

The whole problem is easily dealt with, thanks to the Homeland Security Act. . Have them rounded up and shipped off to Guantanamo, where they can be melted down away from the public gaze.

Extraordinary rendering, if you will.

"Under a 1971 law, the Bureau of Land Management is supposed to protect these horses and make sure their numbers don't get out of hand - so that they're not destroying the ecosystem or dying of starvation."

You mean, we created a system that is supposed to protect wild animals from...nature? I mean, is nature not a system that regulates itself? We really are an arrogant species. Ironic because we invented arrogance. We're probably the only species capable of arrogance. Although, I find that dolphins tend to be pretty full of themselves.

Anyway, horses. The only thing left to do is build the world's longest chariot. Problem solved.

Also, see what they did here:
"Lately, Congress has started reining in spending here."
