This is quite funny.  A concerned Iceland Government decides to check for horse meat in its meat pies and discovers they’ve been keeping the price low in a completely different way.

Icelandic meat inspector Kjartan Hreinsson says his team didn’t find any horsemeat, but one brand of locally produced beef pie left it stumped: it contained no meat at all.

“That was the peculiar thing,” Hreinsson said in a telephone interview Friday. “It was labelled as beef pie, so it should be beef pie.”  

Hreinsson said it appeared to be some kind of vegetable matter. He said the mystery pie was traced to a firm in western Iceland and the case had been handed to municipal authorities

That reminds me… bring back Georgie Pie
