So you *would* eat dog... Why?

For those of you who answered that you would seek out dog if traveling in a country where it was available, for recreational purposes, not because you were starving...

Why? What about it appeals to you?

    1. It's a form of meat, not uncommonly eaten by certain other cultures, that doesn't give me the heebie jeebies thinking about eating it. So, why not ?

      Really, how is your question any different than when applied to any food that you don't commonly eat, that is eaten by people in other cultures ? ie. how is your question any different if "dog" were replaced with "rabbit", "snake", "raw fish", "frog", "snails", "seaweed", "squid", "jellyfish" etc. ?

      In my mind, the question isn't "why ?" but rather "why not ?".

      1. Because it could be delicious.
