This week, horse DNA was found in a variety of supermarket products being passed as beef, although none as much as the Tesco Value burgers, which were made up by almost 30% horse meat. The internet was quick to respond to the Tesco horse meat scandal, and a lot of horse-related jokes filled our newsfeed.
