o I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse … I guess Tesco just listened.
o Anyone want a burger from Tesco? Yay or neigh?
o Not entirely sure how Tesco are going to get over this hurdle.
o Waitress in Tesco asked if I wanted anything on my Burger … so I had a £5 each way bet!
o Had some burgers from Tesco for my tea last night … I still have a bit between my teeth.
o A woman has been taken into hospital after eating horse meat burgers from Tesco. Her condition is said to be stable.
o Tesco are now testing all their vegetarian burgers for traces of unicorn.
o I've just checked the Tesco burgers in my freezer ... AND THEY'RE OFF.
o Tesco now forced to deny presence of zebra in burgers, as shoppers confuse barcodes for serving suggestions.
o Said to the missus, “These Tesco burgers given me terrible trots."
o To beef or not to beef. That is equestrian.
o A cow walks into a bar. Barman says, “Why the long face?”. Cow says “Illegal ingredients, coming over here stealing our jobs!”

These Tesco burger jokes are going on a bit. Talk about flogging a dead …
