I've tried kagogi in South Korea.  Not bad, but unremarkable.  Quite the delicacy there.
The idea of keeping a dog as a pet in Korea is a western import.  Most Korean's think of dogs the same way Yanks think of cows:  dinner waiting to happen.
By the way, it's a particular breed they eat, not random strays.  They are raised on farms (just like cows) and bred for slaughter.

An excerpt from my blog, telling a tale from my 11 months as a Korean student at DLI:

Mr. Minh was a very special teacher. He was ancient in a way that only a Korean man can be ancient. He had a steel wool mop of hair, and a tweed jacket with leather patches at the elbows. He stood a stooped 4' 11", at most, and he was the only teacher to level with us when we asked insensitive, "ugly American" sorts of questions. Like the day he was asked if Korean people really eat dogs; while the other teachers blustered and denied it as slander, Mr. Minh simply shut the door (after checking to make sure the hallway was free of eavesdroppers) and said to us, "Look; Yerrow dog, most tender..."

three words that you just can't put together, and yet there it is.


I've also had a sample of whale meat in Japan, but I can't say I remember what it tasted like.

Not picking on your wife, but.... someone who eats hot dogs really has no grounds for being squeamish about trying other things.  (Me, I enjoy scrapple and haggis, but not hot dogs.  The former may have been made with willies -- among other bits -- but at least they don't look like ┬┤em.)
Yeah, I point that out to her and she goes into denial.  She's happy, I'm happy I suppose...

Anyone responding to this please remember this is a somewhat family friendly forum.  Refrain from any X-rated sausage jokes.  But if you have a good one, PM it to me.  I'd love to hear it.

Oh, dear... I was going to say "in a nutshell", but I was afraid it would be taken the wrong way...

Believe me, I wish I had made that up... but thank you for finding proof that I didn't.  NOW will you people take me seriously???  (I hope not.)

So you were fine with cannibalism but have find horse-flavored ice-cream a lot more disturbing?

I knew there was a reason I didn't join your church...

The church is invitation only.  And meat flavored ice cream is just wrong.

That's what Jesus thought, too.

I didn't know the jews were making ice cream back then.
