Bo Derek is a Horse Nerd.

Hey Bo Derek: Shut up Aren't there much more pressing issues than people in France who want to eat Horse?

God. They're ANIMALS. If people want to eat them, LET THEM EAT HORSE.

As always, you are right. If she's going to fight for animal rights, she should at least fight for something facing extinction, or protecting wetlands or something like that. Just because an animal is cute doesn't mean you have to go apeshit over it, especially since it's so delicious.

Nothing I love more than a nice horseroast with new potatoes and carrots on a Friday night!

My dad taught horse anatomy for 30 years. He'd let me have the manes and tails from his specimens to make crests for reproduction Roman and medieval helmets. I paid for 2 quarters of college from the proceeds. His students always wondered why their specimens were nude. I like horses. I've never eaten one but then I've never eaten cappebarra either.

I think Ms Derek is forgetting that the French don't give a rats ass about what we think.

I'm ambivalent towards horses. Still, I don't see how a distinction can be drawn between them and Cows, so I think trying to ban their export for food is stupid and a huge slippery slope. I don't want to eat dog or cat, but they do in Asia, and it's not eating a human being, or even a monkey (which is also acceptable in other cultures) so while I'm sure her intentions are good...

She's taking up the legislature's time with a cause with which the the Government need not concern itself.

As usual, I'm trying to limit government intervention in daily life. Does that make me an old-school Republican?

Cows are big and stupid. Horses have long eyelashes and don't drool on you. Duh.

Limiting government intervention in daily life...that would make you a Libertarian, which also allows for any sort of "alternative" lifestyle so long as you don't impede someone elses path to happiness.

I think Ms Derek has too much time on her hands and doesn't want to use it on anything that might be important, like World Hunger or Homes for the Homeless. Besides, I bet she'd eat a horse if she didnt have any other options. I know I would.

My word verification reads: pizquuf. It's the name of that little ball on top of a tam.

Thank you for learning me what a pizquuf is. And how the hell did you know what that was?

In Italy once I thought I was eating air-dried horsemeat.

It freaked me the fuck out. But still, like you said, if I were starving, I'd eat it. Hell, I ate it in Italy, because I didn't want to turn to my parents and say, "I think this is horse, and I'm not going to eat it."

And yes, I've said it time and time again, I just want everyone to chase their own bliss as long as they aren't taking my things or hurting me.

Do you all even understand the basics of this bill? Americans dont eat horsemeat! Foreigners are making money of OUR horses. Bo Derek is not alone in her fight! 70 percent of Americans are against horse slaughter..and the bill to ban it! Get involved and get it passed.
