So my wife and I were discussing the European horse meat scandal over our strictly vegetarian dinner. The conversation went something like this..
Me: Did you listen to or read about the European horse meat story?
Me: Isn’t it strange that people are focusing on the fact that ‘it is horse meat‘ that they substituted the beef with rather than focusing on ‘they substituted the beef‘… ?
Wife: Yes. Indeed.
Me: Can you imagine how angry we would be if we went to a restaurant and ordered broccoli cheddar soup only to find out they actually served green beans/broccoli mix instead of 100% broccoli? Or how outraged we would be if the sauerkraut we ordered was actually made of cabbage and cauliflower?? Can you really imagine how much of a big deal it would be?
Me: You think it is not a fair comparison? I think it is…Ha..ha..ha…
