    They eat horses, don't they? :p

    Of course, the ringleader had to be a Dutchman. Could be my cousin.

    Other than it probably not tasting all that good, what is the big deal about eating horse meat, anyway? So long as people aren't selling it as 100% pure Grade A beef, I don't see a problem with it.

    It's not poisonous at all. Doesn't harm anyone to eat it. It's just kinda gross.

    Yes horse meat is eaten.

    This proves that the system works. EU rules were broken the law was applied, Willy is going to the big house.

    That was the scandal.:(

    They eat horses in parts of central Asia, too, and not because they consider themselves gourmands. Horses are seen as a form of wealth, and source of status, and to offer horse meat at, say, a wedding, to your guests is to offer them the highest possible compliment.

    Not sure what your problem with the geographical continent - Europe - that you seem to persist in mistaking for a single political entity, actually is.

    Horse meat isn't anymore "gross" then beef or pork, and some really tasty specialities are only true when made from horse.

    I'm starting to think the OP has issues with Europe.

    Ahh, gotcha.

    If you're going to serve horse, you need to advertise it as horse. Otherwise, you're as guilty as Taco Bell.

    The problem he has with Europe is that it's SOCIALIST!

    Aaronvan is sending a warning to his fellow countrymen that this is where we're heading if we continue down the path of liberalism.

    Don't they have more to do with Chihuahuas?

    Don't push me out of my mental safe place, Bunny. I think I ate horse. I want to continue believing I ate horse.

    If we continue down this dark path of liberalism, then illegal horse meat will happen? Seems like a small price to pay...

    Did you also notice a lack of cats around Taco Bell?

    Actually, no. I've seen a few strays hopping along around the local Taco Bell before.

    ...but I haven't seen them since.

    OH GOD! YOU'RE MAKING ME THINK ABOUT IT! STAHP IT!

    Ah, and a disinterested question posed merely in the objective interests of culinary and gastronomical research, what do cats taste like?

    Horse, I believe I have had on a plate in Europe; actually, in France, where their attitude to gastronomy is refreshingly unsentimental. And also in central Asia, where it is a dish of extraordinary extravagance and huge honour to whatever guests have been invited.
