    Burger King selling Whoppers containing Horse

    Burger King has tonight admitted that it has been selling burgers and Whoppers containing horsemeat despite two weeks of denials.

    ---

    That's disgusting. I'm happy I'm vegan. I wouldn't be shocked if this has been happening in America as well.

    So what if there's horse in it?


    I really don't get peoples' gross-out factor with other mammals. If it tastes good, eat it.

    I mean if it's false advertising and whatnot, that's horseshit.

    But I don't get how eating a horse is more disgusting than eating a cow.

    I think it's pretty silly how people have emotional ties to certain animals over other because of the way they look, or because you can see more emotion in some than others.

    Ever get the feeling that vegetarians consider themselves morally superior to you? Like they think that not eating meat makes them so special that their **** doesn't stink? As if when someone stops eating meat, they suddenly become holy and dignified and it excuses them for the years of inconvenience and frustration they inevitably inflict upon their friends, family and co-workers who just want to go to a restaurant and order a damn steak without constantly being reminded that they're going to hell for eating an animal that spends most of its life ******** in a field. There are those of us who don't have a hyperactive sense of guilt and we don't give a **** about your mixed up self-righteous moral vegetarian agenda.

    "I can't eat meat." The four worst words to hear when you're going to a restuarant with someone. I literally cringe every time I hear those words because I know it means that we have to drive around the city for 2 hours looking for some restuarant that serves "friendly" burgers, which ironically look and taste exactly like hamburgers--which vegetarians object to eating because it's either A) gross or B) murder. If it's so gross, then why go out of your way to eat something exactly like it, *******? It's funny how vegetarians suddenly stop *****ing about murder as soon as you point out their fancy leather belt or shoes, or that they drive a car and use electricity which contributes to polluting the earth and contaminating everything including the precious animals that they refuse to eat.

    Well I'm tired of it. So what I've decided to do is sponsor a vegetarian! It's easy and spiteful, and we all know how much fun spiting people is! I'll explain..

    What does it mean to sponsor a vegetarian? It means that you have to find someone in your life who's a really big pain in everyone's *** every time you want to go out to eat, and then you commit yourself to eating THREE times the amount of meat you'd normally consume to make up for all the meat that your vegetarian buddy isn't eating. It's that simple! That way, you can reverse the guilt trip that they've been laying on us for years by not only neutralizing their cause, but making it actually worse by eating more animals than would have ever been eaten had they not chosen to become vegetarians!

    What if vegetarians say they don't care because we'll become fat by sponsoring them? I've thought about that already. All you have to do is exercise. I know it goes against the being lazy rule that I advocate so much, but this is so spiteful that it more than makes up for the exercise you'll have to do--which means that if you choose the 3 to 1 plan and sponsor a vegetarian, you're being so spiteful that you can't lose! If you have a choice, eat three separate types of animal to maximize your efficiency! Only offered beef? No problem: visit the zoo and eat a monkey!

    The best part of it is that this plan is bullet proof. Finally those of us who don't have our heads firmly planted up our ***** (with respect to vegetarianism, don't get me wrong, most people still need a crowbar up side the head) have a tool to combat these moral elitists!

    Who was that one guy in the General Discussions forum that was all all-mighty about being vegetarian? I think his name was tongue-splitter. That was a fun thread.

    EDIT: Found it! http://forums.prosportsdaily.com/sho...-eater-are-you

    (I hope SACNYY knows I'm not poking fun at him/vegans. I've always wanted to go vegan at some point. I just like ****ing around with certain posters, like tongue-splitter in that situation).

    How can you tell if someone is vegan?



    Don't worry, they'll tell you.

    If only people were as outraged at their burgers containing cows.

    It's not really silly at all. It's hard to see the way we treat animals and slaughter them and not have a humane side that doesn't wish to take part in it. There's always a degree of hypocrisy since you can hardly live at all without impacting others. Some people just want to minimize the damage.

    I used to eat just about everything (from chicken to alligator), but at some point I lost the ability to disconnect the meat on the plate with the animal in the ****** little pen on the farm and it just didn't seem right. Guess it also helps that I used to get nauseated after I ate meat (on a physical not mental level).....seafood still doesn't bother me for whatever reason. I know it's contradictory, but I guess I still have the disconnect on the ethical side and no illness on the physical side for it.

    Vegans/vegetarians don't feel superior, they make a choice that seems sympathetic and automatically is considered that doing otherwise must be wrong, so people feel threatened and call out vegans/vegetarians as having a superiority complex.

    Maybe its a maturity thing too. I went to high school (as a meat eater) with classmates who threw the vegan thing in your face every 5 min and questioned you, but now I work with people and you wouldn't know they are if they didn't bring it up.

    I don't think there's much difference between a veggie pushing you on eating meat v. an ASPCA working asking you to adopt a pet. Just trying to save some innocent lives.

    You don't think it's silly that certain people are all about saving and/or not eating specific animals (cats, dogs), but don't give a **** about other animals (cows) because of the way they look? To me, that's pathetic. It's superficial.

    Well in that instance, yeah. I thought you were going somewhere else with that comment.

    That's just because meat is not some dietary necessity, it's more cultural. People eat cow and chicken but not dogs and cats, unless you're in China then its ok, but keep going west into the mountains and its not ok to eat ANY MEAT untill you get to India where you shouldn't eat cows, but can eat chicken until you get to Isreal where you CAN eat cow but not pig and eventually get to Italy where you can pretty much eat anything that isn't a human.

    It definitely is silly. Another part of my giving it up was realizing there's little rational difference between eating cow or eating dog. BUT I still fall victim to it since I eat occasional seafood. Why shouldn't a salmon be as valued as a pig?

    I was vegan for a little while, but I just love cheese too much. Now I at least try to research if it comes from a humane farm.

    Would I prefer to eat animals that aren't caged and can do whatever the hell they want until some slug makes their brains into scrambled eggs/their necks flow ruby rivers at the slice of a presumably dull instrument?

    Absolutely.

    Do I want to eat meat damn near every day?

    Absolutely.

    Do I have the finances available to buy Betsy the cow and Porky the pig off of a friendly farm and have them slaughtered for my gastronomical interests?

    No.



    Inexpensive meat = a happy America. Is it cruel how some animals are treated? Yup, but it's still not going to get me to lose my human superiority complex and wish that they all got to roam free on some nice farm by a bubbling brook.

    Haven't had Burger King in years, but I've always wanted to try out horse. I wonder if it was around when I would use Burger Bucks there every Wednesday.

    It may sound weird, but I really want to try a horse fillet or a cutlet....something new, and can't be THAT BAD!
