An ironic viewpoint of the horsemeat scandal

 IKEA meatballs

We’ve been avoiding commenting on the horsemeat scandal. First, it’s hard sitting in the U.S. to really judge how much of a problem this is (political hyperbole knows no geographic boundaries) and, second, the revelations never seem to stop. Somehow, though, when IKEA’s iconic meatballs get involved, it seems futile to not at least recognize the situation.

Given the thousands of words spilled on the subject, however, we don’t think we have much to add. But we can add some levity to the situation by pointing you to this clip of Jon Stewart bringing his own inimitable approach to the situation. As he says, “What kind of a world do we live in where we can no longer trust the product purity,  the regulatory oversight of Tranvsylvanian meat slaughterhouses?

    Not only Transylvanian – which is why it warrants comment. Food safety, traceability, and monitoring is pretty appealing here. Wish folks worried about E. coli and such as much as cheval.
