POLL: Beef or Horse, I love my meat

Of course, there are those severely misguided sorts that would like us to eat no meat at all.  Meet Traci Bingham, a “committed vegetarian”, who volunteered for a PETA campaign to put people off their meat.  I’m not entirely sure how this particular campaign would have achieved that, to be honest.


Horse meat is sold to and consumed by human beings in various parts of the world.  Where this isn’t the case, Gareth Morgan’s cat friends and dogs are the lucky recipients instead.  

A decent horse steak is just as good as beef, in many ways better, and if you weren’t told any different, a German horse sausage would hold its own against the bovine variety. Sadly though there will never be Wagyu Horse.

Of course, horse meat is popular because it is cheaper than beef.  On that basis, would you buy it?

Would you eat horse meat (steak, sausages, mince)

    No problems with that – Meat is Meat. Although some rump off that filly above would go down a treat too.

    Can I have the fur burger?

    How much make up is this committed vegetarian/vegan wearing? She is aware that animal fats were traditionally used in make up production? Animals are used to test it? More hipocracy of the highest order. “I wont eat meat but lets squirt Chanel in this dogs eye and see what happens”

      Don’t even start on the petrochemical compounds in these so called beauty products.

      If she is part of PETA then she is probably fairly holistic in her outlook so would no doubt be using animal free in products (including egg yolks, beeswax, keratin etc which are usually organic & chemical free. There are loads of options out there – I have used them for years.

      But with this being an ad & money being on the line it would be interesting to know whether she demanded the make-up people at the shoot used her version of approved products

    Traci doesn’t understand that meat eating got her brain to where it is today. It has been shown that it is implausible that humans could have evolved such a large brain on a raw vegetable diet. There could be a case to be made that vegetarians are making themselves more stupid?

  • GregM

    Om nom nom where to start…

  • tarkwin

    They should have used Sue Bradford or that silly bitch from Greenpeace with the mo. That would destroy the meat industry in minutes.

    • Patrick

      Very true, Bradford would go straight to the glue factory. There wouldn’t be a cut of meat worth taking, even for mincemeat.

  • unsol

    Interesting that Traci is vegetarian, not vegan. I wonder if she has ever eaten wine gums or foods that include gelatine.

    And does she drink wine? If you look on the labels of some wines they warn “may contain fish products”.

    And why horse meat? Are we talking young horses or old sick ones that end up at the glue factory.

    This is a funny issue really as many of those who mock people like Traci either wouldnt be capable or wouldnt be able to stomach killing, skinning & gutting the animal they want to eat.

    Very poor photography, I cannot clearly make out my favourite cut, the breast

    • GregM

      Yup, I was looking for the pork fritters but I will settle for the rest.

    Not into having a burger that finished 10th at Ellerslie on the weekend……
