Flog It Blog It, Fancy some spaghetti bolog-neighs?

Molly The Wally Barks Out Loud!

Hilarious gags at the expense of those companies involved in the horse meat scandal rocking Britain.

We have recently been shocked by revelations that beef products have been adulterated with horse meat. From burgers to lasagne the scandal continues and more and more products and companies have been affected. Yesterday came further revelations that Findus beef lasagne contained up to 100 per cent horsemeat. This has sparked safety fears among thousands of consumers who have been inadvertently eaten contaminated products.
However despite the seriousness of the whole issue as usual the scandal has given the perfect opportunity for some hilarious gags at the expense of those companies. Bookmaker Paddy Power also joined in the fun, offering odds on which animal would be the next to make its way into Britain's food chain, the favourite being deer at 2/1,I'm putting a tenner on bigfoot! 

2/1 Deer
5/2 Donkey
4/1 Dog
6/1 Rabbit
16/1 Squirrel
33/1 Zebra
40/1 Swan
40/1 Greyhound
100/1 Lion
100/1 Penguin
100/1 Bigfoot

So we take a look at who is horsing around on the intermutts!

Anyone for spaghetti bolog-neighs?

You think Tesco Horse Burgers are bad, you should try their Quarter Pandas.’

Told my mate I had a hot date with an Italian Stallion, well it sounds a lot better than saying I'm sitting at home eating a Findus lasagne for one!

Frozen Meat Importers to face more hurdles shocker!

What's the fuss? For years we've been told that Ready Meals contain too much Salt and Shergar!

BREAKING News…….Findus Fishfingers test positive for 60% seahorse!

Horse and Hound, the trade magazine of the French beef sector!

Tesco, everything you want from a store and a little bit mare.’

I selected some burgers on the Tesco website… I then clicked on “add to cart”.’

‘I think someone is trying to kill me. I woke up this morning and found a packet of Tesco burgers had defrosted in my bed.’

I hear that they are putting uniQuorn in the veggie burgers too.’

The scandal continues! What next? We shudder to think? You got to laugh but we also hope it costs these awful companies a lot of green papers.


  1. Lesson: Don't buy process food. Put a fiver on bigfoot for us, too.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

  2. I'm laughing so hard I can barely type Molly...once again you've brought the cold harsh spotlight of Blogville publicity to an issue of urgent impawtance...Put$10 US on possum for me

  3. Once again the English have the market well stock with "BEEF" products, hope you didn't eat to much and start making nosies like a horse.

    Wuff and LG
    Aiko - Alaaaaaf

  5. I am sure there must be a lot of neigh-sayers at these companies....denying it all!

  6. Great post Molly! I hope they all start with a fresh supply of Karma meat!!!

  7. YOU are killing me over here; I am laughing with my full belly (I just ate breakfast) risking an upchuck. YOU ARE TOO MUCH MOLLY! Good heavens, HORSE MEAT? I knew the French used to eat are just a genius with the photo enhancing!

  8. Well I'll be this puts an entirely new twist on being hungry enough to eat a horse. Molly you and your pees find the most interesting stories...and that is why you are my Director of Communications you are in the know and thus we are in the know.
    Hugs your BFFF

  9. Do they sell "Mare Meatloaf"? I to hope that the green papers fly out of their pocket.

  10. Oh Molly, we had a big laugh at these! It is very serious indeed but it seems two
    Legged ones always find humour in these things!!!



  11. I was not aware of this scandal, but must say that your in-depth reporting made me pee my pants with laughter!

  12. Molly you always find the best fun with current events.


  13. Way too funny Molly! That's what Mommy is making for dinner tonight but she's not going to use any horse meat, that's fur sure! We'll have to tell her to check the package of meat in case they try and pull a fast one on us.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  14. It made me want to be a vegetarian now!!!


  15. Woof! Woof! My mom wished she did not read the articles about horse meat. Many are having a ball on it ... joking about it. Thanks for the laughs Molly. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  16. FURST.... this is all news to US... we had no Idea..

    SECOND... WTH is that LOL about the PENIS thingy.. WHO would laugh at a PENIS?

    THIRD... What will be next??? Will we learn that Peeps are putting OUR FOODS in THEIR foods??

  17. EEK! Mowzers, those were some *cough* interesting spins on a news item we hadn't heard. Ewwwwwwwwwww......!

  18. Absolutely horrific but typical of human nature to come up with some hilarious jokes around it.

  19. You made the scandal hilarious, Molly! Me and my family sat and laughed our heads off at that! Bologneighs!!!!!!!!! Woof!
    Have a great weekend!
    Pip :D

  20. So funny! Never have I been so glad to be a vegetarian, LOL!
    Lynne x

  21. How awful. Might be a good time to explore being a vegetarian...

  22. Bawhehawhaha... they won't FINDUS in here.... seahorses in the fishfingers - oh Molly you are such an entertainer - I love you! but honestly I hope they will lose a lot of green papers. -EASY RIDER- (I can't comment it says I'm not me)

  23. Were having Devils on Horseback HORSES DOEUVRES tonight! yum!! Betty

  24. Eeek and I also wanted to say you gave Pip and Puddles a fab time yesterday

    urban hounds

  25. There are so many on the Continent that eat horse and think nothing of it.. Thankfully my mum doesn't eat any of the above... not one in the ol frezer either. She would gag on Chicken :-) Nope she doesn't eat that either :-) x x x

  26. Hay Molly,

    GOOD GOD! Will there be any horses left to run the Grand National this year at Aintree, I fancy the 2.30 at the Findus frozen food section, an each way bet seems fair to me!

  27. Put my money on squirrel, especially since Puddles was just in the UK!

  28. Oh my... that sounds a little disturbing... Glad I've never eaten or heard of those brands before! I ate some rabbit once when I was in Mexico. I thought it was a chicken leg.

  29. To be honest, Wrigs would eat it all regardless of what kind of meat it was, but the human half of this team is more persnickety and doesn't like to eat animals of any kind--especially not horses!

    Susan and Wrigs

  30. So that's what they mean by the whole Filly Mignon thing? Wowzers.
    Mom said when she and Dad lived in Belgium and travelled around, they ended up eating all kinds of things she'd rather forget. Don't get her started on her years in Korea. (shudder)
    PLay bows,

  31. Maybe sometimes it is better just not to know . . . we are going with penguin next! Lee and Phod

  32. Howdy Molly, thanks for the laughs. Wonder if anyone still felt like grazing after they had finished eating? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  33. Yep, the equine contretemps you are facing has made the Big Time: 340 million appalled American viewers who want to know who we can sue. What, you guys don't immediately react to problems with "who can we sue?" How strange. The news here is saying the 'mistaken' substitution was 'not an accident.' And how would you ever know whether all the tainted meat had been removed from all the places/products it showed up in? We wouldn't be buying any non-chicken products for about 6 months - maybe more.

    We are curious that Dog is at 4/1 but Greyhound is at 40/1. Did greyhounds get drummed out of the canine species when we weren't looking?

  34. Molly....
    "Spaghetti bolog-neigh"s!! Crack. Me. Up!! ;-D
    "Tesco, everything you want from a store and a little bit mare." I smirked at that one!! ;-D
    Really?! This is horseshit. Whoops!! Did I actually write that expletive?! I do not allow myself to say it!! Now, would you excuse me, Friend. I need to wash my mouth out with soap!! A strong soap!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... Plus Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  35. All that horse meat hasn't made me run any faster. Maybe the horses thought if we hide in this Lasagne we won't be found.

    I'm geting a little woried that it might be in dog food aswell, i just asked Sheba if she enjoyed her tea and she said neigh.

  36. Hey Molly!
    Wow, this is horrible news! My peeps love horses, so they are totally bummed to hear this. At least it's good for some the unicorn meat! BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  37. The poor horses! People must be so sad and so sick... just another great reason to be vegetarian, or shop at a local butcher that you trust instead of the big chains.

    I can't wait to see your Valentines day ball gown Molly! Have a great weekend xoxo

  38. NO, not unicorn! That is where we draw the line!!
    Gonna eat more Veg!


  39. Molly, you always have the latest news with a funny twist. We had managed to stay on our chairs until we got to the seahorse in the fish fingers. Now we are rolling on the floor.

    Happy Weekend,
    Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew

  40. I think I could eat dog meat...and if you'd like to taste it I can send you Barum and Luna, my dear dog siblings...just kidding, poor dogs that I love so much...or not...
    I think Big foot is big enough for everybody!
    Licks from Pink

  41. Molly I love it, thank goodness we shop in Asda in our Family but I guess maybe they could be adding a little big foot or seahorses to their meat too, who knows?? As a dog, I must admit that I would eat pretty much anything! Mum says if its tasty she would probably eat anything too but she draws the line at unicorns, she hears that they are a magical endangered specie! Go figure! BOL!
    Great post Molly, you have to laugh at these crazy companies! Love, Licks and Hugs from your Furiend Frank XxxxxxxX

  42. LOL at least you all can laugh about it. I like the way the Unicorn was in what looks like a Spam container. lol

  43. The whole horse thing is making our tummys turn over... see we live in the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington KY... horses are not in our burgoo, but racing around our tracks making us money.

    We wouldn't mind some unicorn though... :D
