The entire horsemeat scandal, (and the 'pink slime' one before it), reminds me of the following excerpt from Scott Adams' book The Dilbert Principle (page 138):|
Marketer #1: "You and I might prefer beef in our hamburgers, but the average consumer isn't that discriminating."
Marketer #2: "I heard of a guy who eats light bulbs and nails."

Marketer #2: "So we could fill our burgers with lawn clippings and toenails and that kind of [expletive deleted] and they'd never know the difference."
Marketer #1: "They might even thank us for saving them money."
Marketer #2: "I'm exhausted from all of this market analysis. You want to get a steak?"
Marketer #1: "I'm a vegetarian."
