Don’t see too much of an issue here. I mean, if there’s a market and they can make money from selling it then more power to ’em.
We eat cows and pigs and sheep and deer and chickens and ducks and geese and turkeys and fish and clams and whatnot…so why not horses.
Mmmm, chipped horse on toast.
Did you hear about the Muslim that ate his girlfriend? He had goat for dinner.
Hahaha!! Damn, coffee through the nose hurts!
Woefully misleading headline. A restaurant plans on selling horsemeat, that’s all.
Why so much ambivalence about it though? Some suggest that it’s because horses are closer to being a pet-type animal, which makes them family members, yet we seem to have no qualms about feeding Old Nellie to Rover and Fluffy. On the other hand, I think people would be horrified at the notion of cats being in dog food, or vice versa, so it isn’t just that. They really are close to a totem animal, with a sort of cultural sacredness, almost as cows to Hindus.
Hmm, thought experiment — given the only choices, eat or die of starvation, would you eat dog or horse first? Don’t worry about practical considerations like the dog can help you hunt or you can ride the horse somewhere else or which is more nutritious – just between the two, which would you find least distasteful (no pun intended!)?
I think I may have eaten dog, in a Mexican restaurant in Chino, CA. Nobody in the place would admit to speaking any English, and when I mentioned that the beef was somehow strange, I got no answers. It wasn’t bad, just unusual. I guess I’ll never know.
I kept going back to the place, because the waitresses were cute, and wore black miniskirts and high heels. And you can flirt without understanding each other’s language.
If the beef was grass fed from Mexico, it would be different than our corn fed beef. I hear British beef is peculiar as well.
In this little hole in the wall, I’m not thinking they were serving grass-fed beef from anywhere.
Seeing as we have proof the humans will eat each other if necessary, I think either one would end up as dinner. Of course, Obama would be able to provide some good recipes for dog, and maybe there would be some on the Arctic explorers that ate their dogs in a pinch. The were the main transportation, but they still got eaten. What good is transportation if you are dead?
Neither would be a problem for me, I have eaten much worse.
Who knows what kind of mystery meat was in the old K-Rations and it didn’t hurt me any. And, to this day I cannot stand Spam. I’ll take a Fidoburger any day.
CRAP, I am old enough I ate k-rats, although for the most part we had c-rats. I would NOT bet money that the “beef” in the beef in boulders ever had a hoof. Thank god for Tabasco sauce, it did not make it palatable, just edible.
Lol…rations were rations, it didn’t make much difference. I swear, what we had were left over from WWII. The worst I can remember are the cans, shaped like todays cat food cans, that were supposed to be scrambled eggs and ham. Riiiight.
I think that the reason people have such objections to eating horse meat, as opposed to beef or pork, is that horses are more like big outdoor pets than livestock. People have emotional attachments to them like they do to dogs.
In France I hear Horse Meat is considered a delicacy.
McDonald’s can advertise that they have bigger and faster hamburgers.
Waiter, this steak still has marks where the jockey was hitting it.
Horses have been romanticized so much in our culture, which is why it’s hard to discard them as just another hamburger. I love horses, but I don’t think I’d turn down a horse steak, especially if that was all there was to eat. Back in the day, when horses were the only mode of transport, like when Lewis and Clark made their trek across this great land, they were faced with starving if they didn’t eat their horses. They didn’t think twice about it!
Perhaps after their gelded the parts are made into Swedish meatballs?
