WHEN IN KOREA, DO AS THE KOREANS

Folder: 
PAST POMES

 

Other customs

are always interesting

I was in a Korean restaurant

and the subject

of eating cats and dogs came up

 

The rather cute waitress

explained to me

that it was actually rare

only really a few men did it

because it made them more virile

 

I told her that I had a dog

and I couldn’t seeing eating him

Her English was limited

and she misunderstood me

and informed me

that she knew how to cook dogs

and could cook mine for me

 

I had to explain to her

no, my dog is my friend

and you don’t eat your friends

(not that way, anyway

but we won’t go there)

 

but I must admit

I went home that night

and md my dog was being

a royal pain in the ass

 

I started thinking,

“Hmmm, Sparky burgers.”

Well, they say when in Korea

do as the Koreans

Luckily for Sparky

this is not Korea
