Some British Humour

Some British Humour

 In the UK, some supermarkets have admitted that there is horse meat in their home-cooked burgers. Even places like Burger King have had to admit that there are "small amounts" of horse meat in their burgers.

Tesco is a big supermarket chain in the UK. Within hours of the news that Tesco's 'all beef hamburgers' contained 30% horse meat, the following quips hit the Internet:
I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse. Thanks, Tesco!
Does anyone want a burger from Tesco? Yay or neigh?
Not entirely sure how Tesco is going to get over this hurdle.
Had some burgers from Tesco for supper last night. I still have a bit between my teeth.
A woman has been taken into hospital after eating horse meat burgers from Tesco. Her condition is listed as stable.
"I've just checked the Tesco burgers in my freezer ... "AND THEY'RE OFF!"
Tesco is now forced to deny the presence of zebra in burgers, as shoppers confuse barcodes for serving suggestions.
I said to my spouse, "These Tesco burgers give me the trots...”
"To beef or not to beef, that is equestrian.”
A cow walks into a bar. The barman says, "Why the long face?” Cow says, "Illegal ingredients are coming over here stealing our jobs!"
I hear the smaller version of those Tesco burgers make great horse d'oeuvres.
These Tesco burger jokes are going on a bit. Talk about flogging a dead horse.
Since they're selling the meat wrapped in plastic, is that technically a "Trojan Horse?"
Instead of choosing ‘Rare, Medium or Well Done, it's now ‘Win, Place or Show’.

At first, I thought, "Oh great, I've been saddled with another post to share, but something spurred me to do it.”

Equine burgers always  have too much bran in them for my liking. Though a generous helping of horse raddish Sauce might help.

If you’re tempted to put one of those Tesco burgers on the BBQ, Royce, don‘t leave it on for too long. It might turn into Black Beauty. 🐎

I share .. 


A talking horse walks into a bar and approaches the manager. “Excuse me, good sir,” the horse says, “are you hiring?”

The manager looks the horse up and down and says, “Sorry, pal. Why don’t you try the circus?”

The horse nickers. “Why would the circus need a bartender?”

Did you hear about the man who was hospitalized with six plastic horses inside him?

The doctor described his condition as stable.

A guy is walking through the country when he spots a sign that reads, “Talking Horse for Sale.” Intrigued, he walks up to the stable to check it out.

“So what have you done with your life?” he asks the horse.

“I’ve led a full life,” the horse answers miraculously. “I was born in The Andes where I herded for an entire village. Years later, I joined the mounted police force in New York and helped keep the city clean. And now, I spend my days giving free rides to underprivileged kids here in the country.”

The guy is flabbergasted. He asks the horse’s owner, “Why on earth would you want to get rid of such an incredible animal?”

The owner says, “Because he’s a liar! He never did any of that!”

 “Honey, These burgers taste funny.”

“Nag, Nag, Nag”


“Oh, Royce! You're always trying to stirrup stuff.”
