Just Horsing Around

About the scandal in the UK, where horse meat has been detected in supposedly beef products? Places such as Burger King have had to admit that there are small amounts of horse meat in their burgers.

Within hours of the news that Tesco, a big supermarket chain in the UK, was selling beef hamburgers containing 30% horse meat, these quips were doing the rounds:

I’m so hungry, I could eat a horse ....I guess Tesco just listened!

Anyone want a burger from Tesco? Yay or neigh?

Not entirely sure how Tesco is going to get over this hurdle.

Waitress in Tesco asked if I wanted anything on my burger. So I had £5 each way!

Had some burgers from Tesco for my tea last night ... I still have a bit between my teeth.

A woman has been taken into hospital after eating horse meat burgers from Tesco. Her condition is said to be stable.

I've just checked the Tesco burgers in my freezer ... AND THEY'RE OFF"

Tesco now forced to deny presence of zebra in burgers, as shoppers confuse barcodes for serving suggestions.

Said to the missus, These Tesco burgers give me the trots....

"To beef or not to beef, that is equestrian".....

A cow walks into a bar. Barman says, "Why the long face?" Cow says "Illegal ingredients, coming over here, stealing our jobs!"

I hear the smaller version of those Tesco burgers make great hors(e) d'oeuvres.

These Tesco burger jokes are going on a bit .... talk about flogging a dead horse.
