Eating A Dead Horse

Lisa Simpson Horse In BedWith his competitors jockeying for position, a Philly chef is planning on joining the horsey set… and not in a good way.

Philadelphia restaurateur Peter McAndrews is planning to add horse meat to his menu amid a controversy in Europe over the equine fare being sold as beef. He told restaurant blogger Victor Fiorella that he plans to ‘embrace horse meat wholeheartedly’ at his popular Sicilian spot, Monsu.

“In Italian food, a lot of [horse meat] is made into salami or cured meats, and some parts are also good like regular steak would be, just like a cow,” McAndrews said.

The slaughter of horses in the U.S. was outlawed until 2011, when President Barack Obama lifted the ban.

Of course. What else would you expect from a man who eats dog?

    Wow. That’s (messed) up. For the same reason I’d never eat dog or cat, I could never eat a horse. Simply too many good memories around my uncle’s horses.

    Back in the ’50′s, a popular fast food chain restaurant was busted for serving horsemeat in lieu of beef.

    I don’t wanna start a big controversy by naming names.

    But the golden arches was the finish line.

    Eating horse, dog, rat or locust, etc. is alien to our way of life, but quite common around the world. It’s just a matter of survival or raised in a society where it’s accepted.

    If the end of the world comes then I am sure many will die rather than eat a snake or skunk, but others would survive by do it.

    Donnie – Apparently, Barack Obama never owned a dog. /zing

    JT – I thought they used jackass meat?

    Mike 47 – It just won the trifecta at Belmont.

    WR – No doubt about that. It’s why I watch Survivorman.
