It’s Lady Barker’s sixth birthday today.

That’s just over 21 in dog years *ahem

I was out for a while today and received a curious voicemail from her reminding me to nip in to Tesco’s to get some beefburgers in celebration.

Bizarrely enough, she signed off with a whinny.

I couldn’t think what she meant so I got a load of sausies instead. She’s now hogging the fire, belching pork remnants.

  1. Happy birthday Miss Barker. I thought 1 human year was 7 dog years, which would make her . . . . . 43!
    Don’t worry about not buying the burgers in preference to sausages . . . sure even if you’d bought them, they still would have contained traces of pork. In fact some of them might even have contained traces of beef!!
    Ah well, no point in closing the stable door after the horse has minced – ahem, I mean bolted.
    Still, I suppose it solves the mystery of what happened to Shergar after all these years!!

    • Yes 43, hence 21 and a bit. Like many women she doesn’t want to reveal her real age πŸ™‚

      I have to say the whole beefburger/horse thing doesn’t bother me at all, sure plenty of countries in the continent eat horsemeat, it’s just alarming as to what else they’re putting in there that they don’t list on the packaging πŸ™‚

      Nice joke by the way, heheheh

  2. Aahh, was a bit slow(er) this morning,
    Yeah, loads of countries eat horsemeat. I think the concern here tho is, that it was category 2 horsemeat – the kind not intended to enter the foodchain from human consumption. For example, like racehorses that have been treated with anti-inflammatories, steriods, antobiotics etc that they woundn’t have used had it been meat for consumption.
    Now, I’d better dash and switch on that saddle and let it heat up . . . CAR, Neighhh, I meant car.

  3. Horse meat burgers are almost double the cost of beef burgers in Italy. We can see what all the fuss is about. Although there would be a national scandal in beef was found in the horse burgers.

  4. Yep, that was pretty much it, aside from the fact that we don’t cosume horse here, the horsemeat in question was category 2 – i.e. never intended to enter the foodchain for human consumption.Seems only Supervalu managed to escape.

What's the craic?
