First there were a few dodgy burgers in Tesco's Aldi and Lidl but now horsemeat has also been found in the Findus Beef Lasagne. Quite a lot of it. Twitter has, as usual, stepped up to the challenge...

Ten great horsemeat gags....

@philipwomack: How do you hide the taste of horse meat? Mascarpone

@mrchrisaddison: BREAKING: #Findus fish fingers test positive for 60% seahorse

@GraemeGarden1: What's the fuss? For years we've been told that Ready Meals contain too much Salt and Shergar. #findus

@MrBButterfield: New from Findus! Findus Lasagneigh

@tompeck: So #findus are recalling their 100% horsemeat beef lasagnes. What's that phrase about closing the stable door...?

@DaftLimmy: The problem: we don't eat horses. The solution: we do now. Thanks #Findus!

@Old_Holborn: Now you know why farmers are so keen to round up all the badgers.

@JohnMoynes: I get all my horsemeat from an independent dodgy butcher.

@RealMattLucas: I'm so hungry I could eat a horse Findus Beef Lasagne

@brucel: Those Aldi horse burgers were nice, but I prefer My Lidl Pony

@elhaydo: Good thing about these horse puns is it's stopped all the sick Jimmy Saddle jokes

And one really bad one...

@johnprescott: I really hope they launch a steward's inquiry into the Tescohorsemeat scandal. We must find out hoof to blame.
