Heres comes loads of jokes about Koreans eating dogs... They should get rid of this sentence lol...

Different cultures can be so arbitrary with respect to what is acceptable to eat… my grandma had a cow whom she described to me as if someone were describing their pet dog. Food is food though. When it is time to eat, it has got to go into the pot.

Agreed, besides, if it makes gramatical sense, it's a great way of challenging the brain to learn

Another example a little closer to home… Texans may eat rattlesnake, but New Yorkers think it’s gross.

Sorry guys, but this actually happens. Peruvians eat Guinea pigs and Bedouin are known to have hamster/mouse/gerbil couscous.
