"Horrifying!"

I saw that comment in another article about this. A woman said that the horse meat in the meatballs as, "Horrifying!"

That cracked me up. She couldn't tell the difference, and never would have known. Why are horses so much worse than cows? Seriously - it is just a matter of custom. Like people below have pointed out, they eat horse in France.

I think I had horse sushi once in Japan. I can't remember, because I was pretty drunk. I definitely had whale sushi, even though the Japanese say they only do whaling for "scientific purposes."

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
