There’s two angles here.

First, worrying about horsemeat is just one more thing to worry about. I read about a recall on meat and veggies every several months it seems. I have gotten sick with old mayonnaise once before. Just last year, lead coated plates from Wal-mart made the news. You get the point.

Second, I remember going out with friends and someone would always order what I liked to call the Gastroatomical nightmare, and we’d point out everything that was bad for you in it…yet we all wanted a bite. There’s actually some logic here, as if you know a whole burger is going to give you Montezuma’s Revenge, only half of the burger would be fine.

I have a few other ideas to keep this idea going, but we’ll see how well my ADD holds.
