This witty piece of art from a Reddit user mocks the recent European horse meat scandal.

The image that features a package of lasagna has a picture of a character from the popular children’s cartoon called My Little Pony. It jokes that within the contents of the lasagna is horse meat.

The scandal involves the uncovering of popular names in the food industry using horse meat in its food. This was a very controversial issue in North America as well because some of the companies were American.

This parody is great in that it ties in a popular cartoon character that has become somewhat of a meme over recent years and is able to seamlessly apply it for this relevant issue.
