Horse Meat and Popes.
What's happening in the world today? Let's have look.
The Catholic world is shocked as the Pope announces he is resigning. Well the man is 85 years old so I don't really think it should be that much of a shock. Why did they make a man in his 80's the Pope anyway, they should have chosen a younger model and that way they could have got a few more years of waving at big crowds out of him.
In the UK the horse meat scandal rumbles on and on. For those of you who haven't heard about this, tests have shown that many budget brands of processed ready meals that are supposed to contain beef have instead got a healthy dollop of horse flesh instead.
There are plenty of countries where horse meat is consumed regularly but over here this is a no no for some reason.
I ate horse in Italy a few years ago, it was a bit tough but quite a strong, beefy taste to it and I quite liked it.
I suppose the issue is that it is not labelled as horse but when people want to only pay £1.50 for a ready meal lasagne they should be thankful it isn't bloody rat meat. Never, ever eat ready meals.
If people want a lasagne they should make their own, it isn't hard. Get a cook book and follow the instructions, that's how I learned. Lazy bastards.
North Korea are playing with their nuclear missiles in what can only be described as a pissing contest. That country scares the shit out of me, watching news footage from North Korea takes me back the the Cold War with ranks of military officers standing in endless lines watching missile parading past. And everywhere there are huge pictures of that slimy looking, fat man-baby that is the new leader.
It looks like Orwell's 1984, scary shit.
