I've only heard of dog eating in China, and even there it's not accepted by the majority. My Chinese friends know that some Chinese eat dogs, but they themselves are against it. I'd hate to eat a dog but in a survival situation I'm sure I could do it. After maybe a week without food - been a few days before and even then I wouldn't have considered it. I've eaten raw worms, bugs, roadkill (very well cooked)... On the other hand I've refused to eat stinky tofu in Taiwan and Balot in the Philippines... eck.
Drudge has had a few headlines here lately about some new cannibal movie that's coming out. That disgusts me to the point that thinking about it makes start feeling sick to my stomach. People are probably the only thing that I would say is 100% morally wrong to eat, at any time, ever.
We live in a time where Poe's Law is epidemic in politics & the new Social Media...
However, many forget that Social Media is just the Old Gossipy Neighborhood, accelerated, Neon lit, ( and sold ) with all the old shunnings and bullying and meanness, And fellowship, cooperation, learning and joy of the village.
Likewise, Memes are the new propaganda posters, flashed for various seconds and emphasis ( ranging from "blink and you missed it" to "Heavy rotation pop rock radio" )
Not even half a dozen pitchers of Mojo could convince me to try it.
When I was in Taiwan and Korea, there were few dogs on the street, but many cats. When I asked about it, one of the people that grew up there told me "Cats are too stringy and keep the rat population in check".
San Mig is a staple there (Red Horse is INSTANT hangover beer). Eating rice with your hands isn't unique to the Philippines but a good memory. They're also good for cooking fish whole without gutting them, and chopping up the whole chicken with a cleaver, leaving little shards of bone in every bite. Chew carefully.
One of the cultural nuances I've come to appreciate about many Asian countries is the stark separation between city and rural. In a big city like Manila or Bangkok, a steak dinner can cost more than it would stateside. But out in the village or barangay you can eat like a king for a couple USD. Speaking of Thailand... if you ever go, just stay faithful to Momma and you won't have to worry.... it's stupid hard to tell who's a he and who's a she.
