"100 ways to wok your dog"
A South Korean man suffering from a bad case of the booze-fuelled munchies decided his landlady's Chihuahua would do nicely as a post-session snack, but ended up part-flambéd and cuffed for his trouble. The 52-year-old canine chef, named only as Park, kidnapped said mutt while his 69-year-old landlady was in the bathroom of …
... as an English teacher. While it is true that some Koreans eat dog, it's supposed to be a special breed that's raised for the purpose, and it's also not as prevalent as stereotypes make it out to be. In fact, there is a portion of Koreans who believe that eating dog is bad luck.

"Look up any good traditional mexican recipe site and you will find recipes for chihuahua."
Not any that I remember of. Maybe confusing Chihuahueños with the Tepescuintle "Hairless" dog breed? Those were served in the prehispanic era :)

Been there done that... sitting on the balcony to pissed to stand when a sparrow flew into the glass door beside me and fell out of the air... pulled of the head, stripped off the skin and feathers and gutted with a fingernail... chew and was down with more beer. still warm and raw.
especially the beer :D
vulture icon because it's a dead bird too.
My dad and some colleagues went on a fishing trip to a slightly rural area. One of the colleagues was from Korea. The first day they got their, said Korean said: "I'll make supper tonight, there are quite a few stray dogs around here."
Needless to say, he NEVER got asked to make supper.
