    No, apparently it's because you haven't eaten the first one yet.

    I keep telling my wife that horse meat is tasty and, in fact, healthy because itís leaner then beef. She hasnít quite bought into that yet.

    For want of the wife, the dinner was lost? Or was it the night of fantastic sex?

    Not been to France then? Horse steak is very common and quite tasty too. Oh and when you order a steak there, best say 'beef steak'.

    My wife is actually pretty pragmatic about the issue. That's one of the things I like about the lady.

    There is a large horse slaughter house right here in CT (they ship most of the meat to France, Belgium, Japan, Italy, and Switzerland. Contrary to popular belief, little-to-no horse meat is used in pet food.)

    We were driving by the place one day and I spotted a nice looking horse in one of their holding pens. I remarked on it looking like a healthy younger horse and that it was a shame and all.

    She responded that it was probably there for a reason.

    I'd say the night of fantastic sex...just my opinion...
