MAD Magazine Shows How To Make Ikea Meatballs

I’m sure that by now, you have heard about (and have been disgusted by) the current Ikea meatball scandal. If you’ve been under a rock and hadn’t heard, apparently, Ikea’s Swedish-produced Kottbullar meatballs have been accused of having traces of horse meat among the ingredients. Ikea has since stopped selling the meatballs (at least temproarily), but what if you don’t care about traces of horse and just want your delicious meatballs again? Well, thankfully, MAD Magazine has a set of illustrated instructions for you to use.

The instructions are simple, but surprisingly graphic. But, true to MAD Magazine fun, the subversive humor is funny enough to (slightly) overcome the strangeness of seeing a cartoon horse’s head explode. You can check out the wrong-to-laugh-at-but-funny instruction guide below the post.

The whole meatball incident is crazy, but do you have a differing opinion on this? Are you a person who could care less about eating horse? Or, will you ever eat food from a furniture shop again? Give your opinions in the comments section below. If you’d like a serious take on this debacle, click here to read TIME’s article.
