Stephen Colbert on Taco Bell's Beef-ish Meat

New, 12 comments

Stephen Colbert chimed in on the lawsuit claiming that Taco Bell's meat is only 36% beef: "It is beef-y. Or beef-ish? At the very least it is beef-adjacent. Let me put it this way: On a scale of one to beef, it's got something in there." But of course it all comes down to government intrusion and its minimum requirements for what can be labeled beef. Said Colbert, "Who cares what the government says? I say if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, glue some hooves on that thing and call it beef."
