‘Next the furniture will contain wood’: Horse meat found in IKEA meatballs; Humor reigns

Oh, dear.

Oh, honey. Don’t you know that mama always knows best?

That’s right; Horse meat has been detected in IKEA meatballs and sales have now been halted in Sweden.

Twitter users polished up their spurs and hopped on their humor saddles. And away we go:

And, lesson learned?

Couches, yes. Meatballs, nay.

    And people wonder why I hunt deer….range fed, no additives or chemicals, no neighbours’ daughters’ pony parts….

    I really think it was Monkey Meat……”Darling Darwin the Ikea Macaque” case is er… settled….

    To be fair, I’m sure that Ikea put up some kind of disclaimer but no one could understand it.

    Meatballs, neigh!

    Yeah cuz killing a horse is 100x more offensive than killing, say, a pig with an iq higher than a dog. Or Ted Nugent hunting animals in a fenced enclosure and owning canned hunt businesses. Or torturing monkeys in medical labs. Or denying elephants mourn their dead family members and conduct burial ceremonies while torturing them (even young babies ripped from their mothers) to do circus tricks, living chained to a cement enclosure.

    It’s no wonder we ended up with the ignorant citizenry we have believing in the Obama way if they can’t even figure out simple compassion.

    Horse meat is a STAPLE in Europe and is readily available/bought in your local grocery stores, next to the pork, the beef, bird prey of all sorts, game meats and all the other usual suspects…..

    Most of these yahoos probably don’t know this, since they’ve probably never left the US, but people in the Northern countries in Western Europe eat horse meat. In meatballs. And other dishes. Holland, Sweden, Norway, etc.
