    there is no emoticon for the look on my face right now.

    backing out of this thread so I can eat hamburger later in the week without hopefully recalling I ever came in here.

    I suppose this is not really funny.....but I'm LMAO at the above comments. :floorlaugh:

    The only hamburgers loaded with horse power.

    Somebody made a wrong turn on the way to the glue factory.

    Where the Kentucky Derby losers end up.

    I thought it was legal to eat horse meat, so I can't see the issue here...

    If it is legal, and it is in some places, I think that calling it "beef" when it is decidedly not just beef, is an issue...and a big one, at that.

    Yes, it's a horse size issue.

    Glad this doesn't happen in Australia. It'd nag at my conscience.

    Though where the horse meat came from would be my mane concern.

    I’m sure the beef industry won’t change in midstream.

    Most English people would be appalled at the idea of eating horsemeat. We make our own burgers, we know what is in them
