    OK let me stop you right there!

    We all know what girls dream about regarding horses and it's disgusting.

    DISGUSTING!
    i don't know, i've never been a girl or witnessed their dream. will you tell us? do i need to sit down for this? will i need a bucket? it's not going to be like War Horse is it because that made me cry and right now i'm a bit sensitive what with my condition and all: extreme shyness, social anxiety, fearfulness and an all encompassing need to cover myself in foil. the doctors call it Hyper-Sensitivity and say i'm borderline demented but i don't believe them because they've never met me.
    i also like the colour blue, i wish for WORLD PEACE and goodwill to all men and look great in a swimsuit.

    My concern is that the meat isle at Tescos is going to be empty soon if we keep losing more stuff to this faux outcry.

    So how about we bring the badger and fox cull forward? Kill two birds with one stone (then add those birds to the fox mince and badger burgers)

    Curious to know whether all these tests are specifically looking for horse DNA. Could there be other animals in this contaminated meat what we haven't even heard about yet

    I think what happened was that legal minced horse was exported and passed from supplier to supplier. At some point along the way, some crooks switched the labels, or just tippexed out horse and wrote cow. Going to the effort of mincing cats, dogs, rats etc would be too much effort, especially as the horse meat was so cheap.

    @DaM

    ahh, the old tippex out horse and write cow eh? clever bastards. incidentally i once owned a mincing cat. kept himself to himself and was very good to his mother but refused to use the litter tray until i splashed strong cologne all over it.

    Funny how when asked, no-one wants to eat horsemeat, but they buy it blindly in a supermarket.

    I want to eat horsemeat. I want the burgers I used to buy, back in the freezer section but relabelled to make it clear they're horse. They were tasty so I want them back. All they do now is Birdseye and they don't taste as nice.

    Genius, Iceland boss claims their burgers might well contain dog and cat. Nice PR job there, mate!

    It is very rare I eat processed meat, I'd rather pay a little extra and get what I pay for in a butcher.

    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 #1: "Exactly. They don't care what they eat."

    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."

    To be honest, Butchers aren't immune to being affected either. They get their meat from other providers like everyone else. It's not like they go out to the fields with a meat cleaver in hand and slaughter the animals themselves.

    No, but most of them will know the guy that does (or the guy who tells another guy to at least). In general it's a way, way shorter supply chain.

    Damn right! It's not like it's not fit for human consumption, it's food that's being wasted because it was mis-labelled. That's it! You don't have to force it, just hire a hall or something and put out the word there's free meat for those that want it.

    Screw it, send it all to me. I'll be set for life :)

    Yeah, I'm not sure where I stand on that, if it's safe (?) then why not is give it away to people who can choose not to eat it?

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Don't get me wrong, don't force it on anyone, but do offer it for those that just don't give a monkeys on whether they're eating horse. Or monkeys.

    You must be a supermarket luddite. When you go to a butcher, there tends to be a more sociable atmosphere when looking at the meat available. If this is not the case, then it's pretty obvious its not the shop for you.

    Every butcher I have used currently and in the past, I check and ask them how they source their meat. In some cases, I have found out that some butchers sell hung meat (drained of blood). Only by talking to the butcher will you find these things out, and on the whole I am a sociable guy so it's never a problem to strike up a conversation on the fly when shopping.

    This is the very thing I detest most about supermarkets, no friendly banter to gauge the person you are trusting when buying foodstuffs from. Its a sad world indeed when people shuffle into a supermarket, pick up a box, shuffle to the checkout and queue in silence then briefly smile as they hand over their cash.

    In my old butcher, if you asked for lamb chops they'd pull out half a spine of lamb and cleave it into chops in front of you, then tidy them up and bag them. God help you if the person in front of you asked for a rack of lamb, cos that takes an absolute age to butcher.

    These days I go to the butcher across the road most often, as they're a little less snooty there, and they do more varieties of sausages. They do most of their butchering in a room at the back though.

    None of this meat would ever appear in a butchers or supermarket by itself, it's only in processed products. It's the shittiest scraps blasted off the stripped carcass.

    @Moot_Point So you're the guy who holds the queue up for half an hour with your insatiable urge to talk about meat.

    Get bent.
