Burger King admits selling beef burgers and Whoppers containing horse meat | Mail Online
This issue is in the UK but it kinda makes you wonder where they are getting their meat here in the US...
Horse meat is actually really tasty. It's far better than beef, in my opinion.
Taco Bell says damn finally someone trumped our sand meat
Wouldn't bother me and yes, it is leaner than the beef.
So THAT'S why I kept saying, "HEY!" after eating at Burger King!
Hearing this over their Muzak system reminded me of the superiority of "free range" products . . .
I had a horse Steak in Xtapa once. I did not know it until after the fact. It was good but I probably would not have eaten it if i knew what it was beforehand. I don't really eat at Burger Kink but I doubt it would stop me if I did. I guess it is the norm in Europe.
Remember the old, old rumor about McDonald's putting worms in their burgers? We actually considered going to a bait shop, buying a bunch of worm containers, disposing of the contents and scattering the empty containers around the big trash dumpster behind one of the local locations. But we were kids and the cost of the bait for the prank put the kibosh on the plan.
One wonders if the UK Version of their old jingle went like this:
Hold the pickle
Hold the lettuce
Special orders don't upset us
All we ask is
that you let us
Serve up your neigh
Their burgers do taste different than other fast food burgers. so that quarter pounder was a quarter horse, aye?
Had it before outside the USA. It really is tasty and flavorful.
Remember that scene in Pulp Fiction? . . . The one where the Scientologist/Hired Killer is discussing the relative merits of dining opportunities with his cohort at the moment who later went on to apply his talents to keeping Snakes on Airplanes off the "plates" offered to diners therin or thereon? No? too bad.
(that is what is technically known as a set-up =)
[the vinnie barbarino guy]: So . . . if they call a Quarter Pounder With Cheese a "Royale" in Paris . . . would Brits say "neigh" to calling it a Prime Minister? And Scotsmen scarfing down McHaggis on a Wee Bun look up to utter "nae"?
[his parner in slime]: Don't even get me started on "tater tots" . . . those irish m*****f***s will start calling for another famine.
just don't eat the soylent green.
Oh! Wait!! Here he is now . . .
Please . . . please . . . Be Advised that nine out of ten Caveman Lawyers prefer Soylent Yellow or Blue to green on a Whopper.
(with the possible exception of Arby's "roast beast" Horsey Sauce.)"
Got That? . . . i didn't think so . . . =)
I had a horse steak in Belgium and it was pretty good, reminded me of beef steak. Seemed a little stinkier/gamier to me. Pretty good though.
Last Night, Jay Leno:
" . . . I think people should have started getting suspicious about horsemeat in the burgers when they put them up on the counter for customer pickup saying, ' . . . and they're off . . .'"
I'm getting a little tired of the jokes about horse meat, and I really wish everyone would rein in the horse meat puns! I think I had Horseburger last night by mistake. Never again. Had terrible night mares. I was wondering, are Burger King's burgers best served as an horse d'oeuvre or as a mane course? I've tried Burger Kings and Wendy's burgers and I have to say Burger King wins by a nose.
I hope the rumor that they are including roadkill in Smashburgers isn't true . . .
I second the annointing . . .
(to take a bit of the heat off, and neutralize--or geld--the issue, perhaps Burger King should own it and start using "Camptown Races" in their advertising campaigns . . . that, or do as one of Jay's writers suggested and start calling those breakfast treats, "Sausage Sea Biscuits")
(i guess it isn't true that the knighthood of "Sir Horses of the Liver" included kidney and blood pudding clusters . . . (brits eat fish for breakfast (shudder). they call them "kippers" . . . fish for breakfast. can you imagine? i think "Mad Cow Disease" started long before they would have us believe it did . . .)

Monty Python Ad that never ran:
