LONDON - Britain’s prestigious consumer watchdog agency known as BBB for Britain’s Burger Bureau has just released a news bulletin stating that traces of horse DNA have now been found in some of Burrito Bell’s menu items.
A representative for England’s Burrito Bell chain Sir Brighton Shackleshire, called a press conference and announced that the traces of horse meat found in the tacos, tamales, and burritos were actually the size of a normal flea’s nose and did not pose any health risk whatsoever.
He did say that his food chain has severed their ties with The Silver Hooves Meat Supply Company and is now importing all of it’s meat products from nearby Whales, which hardly has any horses to speak of.
Shackleshire, in an effort to assure the eating public and especially its loyal Burrito Bell customers, confessed that he has personally been eating horse crumpets at least twice and month for the past three years.
He noted that he has had no side effects to speak of and happily added that he has noticed that he can now run faster than he has ever run before.
Shackleshire did say that recent research studies have disclosed that 17 percent of the people in Great Britain revealed that they did not necessarily find horse meat to be unhealthy.
SIDENOTE: Burrito Bell has announced that for those devoted patrons the food chain will be adding a new menu item called, The Silver Saddle Supreme. It will consist of an order of three tacos filled with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and 80 percent beef and 20 percent horse.
