And how do you know your beef burgers from the local Uncle Sam shops ain't mixed in the meat of your tens of thousands missing Americans, who just simply 'diappear' into thin air?

Muslims love them,
as well as camel meat, dog meat and cats.
Most of them now find pigs a delicassy.

In Africa, and perhaps elswhere, muslims still resort to cannibalism.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Don't believe what your mummy told you!
The street lights in the alleyway were very dim that night you was spawned. She couldn't have see his exact facial features.
Anyway, she was totally engrossed in the erotic pleasure by the unexpected and uninvited intrusion......
This was story of your useless life beginning boy!

Filthy Han eat each other, along with every other living thing on Earth. Of course, when you've got over a billion crowded into a nation as small as China, you have to eat what you can get - and siphon off the excess people to prisons, camps, and executions.

Now if we could just get these vermin out of Tibet...

So some Europeans such as the French, Belgians, Dutch and more enjoy horsemeat but the EU will have a hissy fit when a Canadian fishermen kills and eats a seal?

Ever wondered why we harbor such a distatse for including horsemeat into our meat availability? I had a hamburger once, in France that i am pretty sure was equine, and it was fine.....

Don't know what it is about Tesco they can get away with anything it seems
nearly a decade back they had that incident with the chicken that was getting past its best so they washed it in disinfectant... if that had been some other supermarket they'd gone out of business from such a bad rep
Tesco is taking over the world... at a tesco I know there have been ppl begging to the security guard to get back in after being banned (not me, lol) what?
apparently if it's got a purplish tinge instead of red it might be horsemeat... seen it in catfood

You realise the biggest seller of burgers on earth is McDonalds and there isn't a single piece of ham in any of their hamburgers, right?

not to mention our liberals and old hippie lefties, vegans and assorted fruits and nuts. They have ruined the the Far North lifestyle with their effete judgemental attitude. Just never vote for any of them , that's the way.

Well, they mostly just club them to death en masse for their pelts, which upsets some people.

Plenty of Chinese who like dog meat, too, and Americans who love Twinkies. NO accounting for tastes, as they say...:)
