"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.

Latest news reports is that the horse meat is the result of criminal activity.
Better horse meat than mad cow disease I guess.

Which, of course, now leaves the question - if they can't establish where the horsemeat came from, how do we know any of it is 'fit for human consumption'?

Think I'll be down to the farm shop to make a rare breed even rarer!

On a can of tuna:
"No dolphins were harmed in making this tuna.
We did have to harm the tuna, and we're really sorry about that."

Oh and I just finished reading The Jungle.

  LOL

People can't swim with Tuna, they are too fast, so we dont bond with them ?

Many people in India revere cows,  we eat them , many people eat dogs in the Far East, we find it disgusting.

If they raced sheep at Ascot, would we not have lamb on our menus?

I love garlic snails, and while not bonding with them, my grandaughter finds it disgusting :-)    ( perhaps its the garlic breath she finds disgusting come to think of it ! )

Other vegatarians reckon we were never meant to eat meat, yet we have an omnivores teeth and can digest any meat with our single stomach.

Look at the queues at the meat counter at the supermarket, with all the people hunting and gathering.

Don't tell me its not right to eat meat from animals that have been raised for just that purpose ( as opposed to pets or working animals ) when you drink milk, and eat eggs :-)

Wow, this little middle-of-the-night, can't sleep post is so long, perhaps I should tag it as code  !

But plants are living too. That is until we pull them out from their roots and put them into boiling water.

But then again there is a reason they call it the 'Food Chain' and where you place on the chain and what you feed off the chain is kind of a big deal.

I wonder what Prince Charles used to talk to his plants about ?    "  I think I will have you tonight, on a bed of rocket ,  with a little thousand island dressing ,  yummee "

And one day they'll take over the world.

No wait, that's insects - the real top of the food chain ...
