Awesome leg…pieces

Humour, Travel


Ooh! What a dish!



In most situations we would assume we know what these exclamations were for. Right?

But if you were to see the following images, you might start thinking a little differently! Pay attention to the labels.




I swear, there’s no PhotoShop kind of manipulation work involved in these above images! (Incidentally, I don’t even use PhotoShop anymore. Instead I use GIMP. You should try it too. It’s a cost-free, guilt-free and obligation-free open source software that does most of what you do with PhotoShop.)

Coming back to the subject…

So is this Korea ki goriya taking her afternoon meal for a walk, eh?

Hold on, don’t throw up! The food labels (Original Home Dog & Home Chilli Dog) were merely the result of crude translation of Hot Dog into Korean and then their cruder translation back to English!



Legnote, oops, Footnote:
It is not that all Koreans eat dogs, all the time.
It is not even that some Koreans eat dogs all the time.
Not even that all Koreans eat dogs some time.
Just some Koreans eat dogs some time.
And most of the people we met had not eaten and would not eat dog meat.
Apparently this has a direct correlation with the economic prosperity of the land — with other costlier sources of protein being available to people.

  1. LOL. There is this really bad misconception about Asian people in India. I met so many people who say “oh, Chinese eat anything.” I keep telling them that it’s not true! You said it quite aptly.

    By the way I love you man.. er in a very platonic brotherly way. I am also a big proponent of Open source and these days I am using open source as much as I can. (Writing from my Dell laptop running Kubunntu :) )


  2. “Just some Koreans eat dogs some time.” do they really or are you jsu tryin to fool around~~~i mean i hav seen a korean eating a “live” squid~~~so dogs seem much of a possiblity as they are far easier to catch~~~

    Yes, the dog-eating insight was given to us by our Korean hosts. Back home, a self-anointed expert on this subject offered an insight that meat-eating habits of people have a direct correlation with the economic prosperity of the land. Apparently when costlier sources of protein are available to people they move to those, and social taboos get formed around cheaper meats. So it is not necessarily a function of ‘easy to catch’ :-)
