Silly burger has no leap of imagination

By Claire Harrison

The Christmas Market at City Hall is a great spot for a burger but also for eaves-dropping on some typical Belfast conversations.

The Meats of the World stand – kangaroo, ostrich, venison or wild boar anyone? – is always a festive favourite of mine, but not so much with one woman we overheard there at the weekend.

When asked what she was having by a friend, the visitor was quick to recount a horror experience from the year before.

"I got one of those kangaroo burgers last year," she recalled.

"I had just finished it when someone told me there was real kangaroo in it. I can't believe no one told me there was real kangaroo in a kangaroo burger."

I kid you not.
