The horse is inside

Thursday, 17 January, 2013

Today’s stomach-churning headline is provided by The Daily Telegraph: “Beef contaminated with horse meat sold in Britain for ‘several years'”. Appetizer: “Seven of the leading supermarkets have cleared their shelves of frozen beefburgers after a supplier sold Tesco products which were 29 per cent horse meat.”

Because there’s a murky Irish connection in this scandal, now is a good time to roll out the Rubberbandits, a pair of lads from, er, lovely, Limerick, who know their equine affairs, outside and inside. “They’re a hip-hop comedy duo from Limerick who rap about horses and terrorism,” states The Guardian today, and asks: “Is Britain ready for the Rubberbandits?” Timing is everything, and it’s an ill wind… and all that.

    Oh wow, horse meat! That is really disturbing. Just thinking about it makes my hair at the back of my neck stand up. What more if I happened to buy those stuff before this news came out?
