unless they have oil.
i work with and am good friends with a korean engineer, who's tried dog meat. he had it while on maneuvers in the south korean army. someone in his patrol was tired of their rations, and stole a stray dog from a nearby village. the poor pup was made into a thick stew. my friend, young choi, said he had some so as not to look wimpy, and couldn't really tell that it was different than any other normally consumed meat.
according to guys i know that covered the olympics when it was in korea in '88, dogs were not a very popular dish there, except in some remote rural places. so i guess the people ate them just like many here in the rural areas of the u.s. eat "odd" critters", as fryboy had mentioned.
when young choi came to the u.s., we took him to his first yankee game, during which he noticed "hot dog" at the vendors carts. when we all ordered them, he joined in.
as the hot dogs were being passed down the row of seats and finally got to young choi, he remarked "i'm sorry. do i have to eat that
part of the dog?"
you never know when he's kidding...
