Horse Play

One man's meat is another man's meat, too.

Whilst I fully appreciate that now, under "elf an' safety", we need to know the entire pedigree of any meat we consume I am exercised into wondering why anyone would 'bridle' at the discovery that they had consumed a lasagne, burger or any other dish comprised entirely of horse meat.

I am reminded of those campaigns in which the consumer was asked to tell 'Stork' from 'Butter' in a blind tasting. It seems that in an unwitting test of the British palate no-one could tell Beef from Horse.
