I'm not that bothered by the horse meat. What does worry me though is, if they didn't realise that horse meat was going into them what else could be in there?

I don't care if people want to eat horse they can eat a horse.

You are just another brainwashed fool. You are a disappointing human being of the highest caliber who believes he is educated but is ignorant like a bum. You sir is the one that is crazy who believes in all the bullshit in school, TV, and whatever the politicians tell you.

YOU FAIL. Just because I am aware of the reality, I am crazy? You are a failure of the highest magnitude. I really do hope you wake up. Why don't you look up David Icke? And no, don't tell me he is another crazy person. To me, a crazy person is a dumbass that denies the truth.


It's funny how your status says CR has too many ignorant people, then you basically put your foot in your mouth with your inane personal attacks, essentially "five-upping" faceless red. That's also pretty ignorant of you to make so many assumptions about his education and beliefs. Your quickness to resort to pedantic flame-war tactics is not very becoming. My question to you is: do you acknowledge your hypocrisy, and include yourself among the so-called ignorant people of crunchyroll, or are you just trolling?

Yeah, um. To be honest, I don't see a problem with eating horse meat, but I do have issues with false advertising, even if accidental.


I'm glad there are still some reasonably open-minded people out there. Horse is delicious, btw. Couldn't tell by your comment if you've ever had any.

I don't understand the majority of my fellow Westerners' when it comes to foods. They'll be happy with a hot dog, McRib or most other fast foods, as long as they're not told what's in it. They'll eat anything from deer to rabbit to duck, very adorable animals. Not to mention the duck and rabbit, as well as the occasional pig are often pets, so it can't be the pet or adorableness thing.

If it's intelligence, why are they willing to eat pigs instead of dogs? Pigs have a slightly higher intelligence, so that argument makes no sense.

If you're a carnivore, stop being so picky. Unless they're putting feces or dangerous chemicals in your food, then if it tastes good, just enjoy it.


Forgot the topic... yeah unknown meats in foods is outrageous. Even though I don't believe in many food specific lifestyles, such as the Jewish, forked hoove creature, ect... people should be free to life the lifestyle they choose without worry of being lead astray by immoral business'


As far as I know I haven't tried horse yet. It's generally considered pretty taboo here. The last time I really had the opportunity was in France when I was 12, and back then I was still very picky about what I'd eat. I'd like to though, as soon as I find a butcher who sells it at a reasonable price.

They should have just relabelled the burgers as "Meat Burgers", it shouldn't be that hard for Home Brand products, in Tesco's case for fresh produce I believe it's just a sticker. Sell it at a marked down price, it should do well... I mean it, most of us here are broke enough that as long as it tastes okay and is safe we wouldn't care, it's not like its the Japanese excrement stake (see http://www.dailytech.com/Japanese+Make+Delicious+Nourishing+Steaks+From+Human+Feces/article21932.htm.)

Good thing I'm planning to grow a vegetable garden and cook my own food once I find the land to do it on.

Seeing as how horse meat is seen as a delicacy in France and Italy for example (if of a good quality and well prepared), I doubt cheap grade, frozen meat burgers from Tescos mixed with pig and beef DNA could be considered a delicacy. So the comparison is somewhat missing the point and sensationalized (yay, media).

The KFC example speaks for itself. Will people go 'ew' when they see it? Yes. Will it make them think? Maybe. Will they continue to spend money at said meat restaurant? Most likely.

Not surprised.

If I don't know where my food is coming from, I usually expect the unexpected.
Like the fingers that sometimes appear in fast food places.
Or the other random human parts in sausages.
Or the teenager that spits in your burgers...
The list goes on...


Horse meat? That isn't so bad.
