As the horse meat scandal continues, Bill Maher is enjoying pointing out the hypocrisy of the outrage over the mislabeling of food.

In his “new rule” Maher took on horse meat, GMO labeling, overfishing and America’s desire to eat processed garbage. He said, “New rule: If you’re one of the millions of Californians who voted against labeling genetically modified foods you can’t complain when it turns out there’s horse meat in your hamburger and your sushi is made out of lost cats and condoms.” We have no idea what sushi might be made from but according to Maher’s stats, it’s not what’s advertised on the menu. He said, “And if you like sushi you really don’t know what you are eating because those fish are mislabeled 74% of the time.”

Maher proceeds to rip apart the public for their ignorance about where their food comes from, what it’s made of, and the speed at which we are emptying the oceans.

See the entire clip below. It’s even better than Colbert’s take on horse meat because it tackles so much of the food system.
