So hungry you could eat a horse? Well, the problem is that you might have done just that.
Since the story about the horse burgers on sale in Irish supermarkets broke earlier tonight, the social media platforms have gone mad with the news that we might have been eating horseburgers without knowing it.
As usual the internet has balanced outrage with comedy, and some of the responses have been pure gold.

Martin does of course raise a great point: “sir, why don’t you just use real cows?”. That is truly what we’re all left wondering after this news.
We reckon this will run for a while, there’ll be so many puns that our throats will be hoarse from laughing.
