The horse meat “scandal” has entered its second furlong and is really getting into its stride with the news that Findus “beef” lasagnes have been found to contain 99% equine protein. Cue more horse meat Twitter jokes, now with added Findus, Shergar and lasagne.

What’s the fuss? For years we’ve been told that Ready Meals contain too much Salt and Shergar. #findus

Coca-Cola are pleased to announce that no horse DNA has ever been found in any of its products. Especially Shergar-Free Diet Coke.
You can guarantee that if Heston’s lasagne had horsemeat in it, the middle-classes would be w***ing themselves blind over it.

BBC: When asked how many years Findus have been adding horse meat to their products their MD struck the ground 6 times with his front hoof.
Put my Findus Lasagne into microwave. I took it out after 3 minutes & it still wasn’t finished. I said, “I’ve backed you before haven’t I?”

BREAKING: #Findus fish fingers test positive for 60% seahorse.
Dunno why people are complaining about this horsemeat story. A horse is basically just a really fit cow.

I don’t get why everyone is so upset about the horse meat thing. I mean seriously, why the long faces?
Richard III walks into a gay wedding eating a horsemeat lasagne. Twitter explodes.

Very proud to say this morning that our beef lasagne does not contain horsemeat. Or beef. Or sheets of lasagne. We’re a shipping company.
