I guess all Diablog readers have heard about the horse meat scandal here in the UK and many parts of Europe
Personally it doesn't bother me at all on the basis that if you already eat dead cows what difference
does it really make.
Horses for courses that's what I always say...well maybe I didnt ever say that, but I do now.
Anyway I was out today having been dragged by Mrs Pete to Westfield.
At the time of it's opening Westfield was reported to be the largest shopping centre in Europe, which my feet will now confirm cos they are killing me.
During this 5 hour shopping marathon we stopped off in a well known burger establishment and images kept flashing back in my warped mind as to what was actually in the quarter pounder on offer.
Things didn't start off well when the young man at the counter asked if I wanted anything on my burger and I told him I would have a fiver each way.
I also told him I was so hungry I could eat a horse which was met with the same retarded stare.
So eventually we sat down, with me reminding my long suffering wife that the burger I was eating was low fat, but full of shergar.
I can't say she laughed at this witticism, but by now I had (excuse the pun) the bit between my teeth, and I reminded her that this meal was the affordable way for our daughter to have that pony she always wanted.
For some reason this gastronomic experience ended quickly when I said 'heaven knows what is in their 'cock a leakie' soup'
I was then dragged out the establishment to continue the 'shopping experience'.
In am now back home to my country retreat, tired and exhausted and with definite plans to avoid similar shopping trips in the immediate future.
I am off to the New Forest for a couple of days on Wednesday.
The whole place is full of ponies and I just hope I can keep my mouth firmly shut whilst I am there.
P.S. Drive-Thru McDonalds are more expensive than I thought... once you've hired the car...
