You have to eat a lot of those to fill up though.

I think it's easier to clean when it's hard.

This is a question that recently surfaced in a conversation about jerks that reside in Georgia, here in the US. As of late everyone, it seems, from 18 months old and up can pack a sidearm in Georgia. The cops hands are tied to stop them. It's just inviting anarchism.

I remember, when I was young, I'd also heard that it is legal to eat dog in Georgia. From a quick search, this seems to have been true during the depression years, but I'm wondering if they still do that. I know I'd have difficulty trusting anyone from Georgia right about now.


It's self explanatory. If a family member or someone else starts foaming at the mouth you pull your gun and blast away.

Apparently Georgia is ahead of the curve. Catch up!

I'm sure Atlanta is the dog eating center of Georgia...

Population control and provisions on the Thanksgiving, or other, table as well. I wonder if chainsaws can be used instead of sidearms...

I, personally, would rather just steer clear of eating meat, period.

Not me. To me it's all about the blood and guts and veins in my teeth (thanks, Arlo).

Yes. Reduce the population voraciously, but don't waste all that meat!

Can't eat more dog lessen you can shoot more dog. Can't shoot more dog lessen you have more guns. Seems clear to me.

This thread wouldn't exist if the news stories that sparked it were on Jamaica or somewhere in Africa.

I guess some groups are fair game.

Thus goeth out the hounds of Hell Lo even though the forlorn hope drives deep into the bowels of Georgia. God's peed! God's peed! Still it was man who made fire hydrants.

Mohican, I think you're flogging a dead horse* with some of these people. Between the Dumb Ones 'Kill them all' attitude and Nacia's 'Let them eat cake' attitude it seems you are up against some pretty closed minds.

Because some people eat dog meat in Georgia, there should be a blanket condemnation of the entire Georgia population?
I take it, by your question, that this practice still goes on?
Gotcha!

C'mon Mo' you walked right into that one. Pay attention.

Which of these statements is true?

1. Everybody from Georgia eats dog meat.
2. Most people from Georgia eat dog meat
3. Some people from Georgia eat dog meat.
4. A few people from Georgia eat dog meat.
5. Nobody from Georgia eats dog meat.

Also I believe that there is no specific law in Georgia against eating elephants. Therefore the people of Georgia must be eating Elephants.

I'm sure Nacia is going to jump in here to say how appalled she is that Georgians are eating elephants.

I'm from Louisiana myself, which in some peoples eyes is just as bad as Georgia. Wait 'till they find out that we eat rats in Louisiana.

'Hammer-down, safety off' Mo' here they come!

*Now they'll accuse us of mistreating horses. Oh wait, that's Europe.

Best wishes
Metairie Road

I've heard possum pie is pretty good. Lots of critters are migrating north these days. Georgia isn't a safe place to rocknroll?

Metairie Road
I think it's Africa where those starving little kids with stick figures for bodies and balloons for heads are eating rats and being happy.

Consider the Congo region... I imagine rats are at the bottom of the menu. People feet likely are the special a la mode.

It looks like the Georgians aren't the only ones who eat dog

https://www.wsj.com/articles/olympic...eat-1519555641

By Min Sun Lee in Seoul and Warangkana Chomchuen in Gangneung, South Korea
Feb. 25, 2018 5:47 a.m. ET



American freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy will return home from Pyeongchang without a medal—but with a new Korean puppy.


Eating dog meat is widely practiced in several countries in Asia—China, Vietnam, Indonesia and the two Koreas.


But nowhere is the practice commercialized like it is in South Korea, where some 20,000 dog farms raise the animals for human consumption, according to the Humane Society International—often in foul conditions with the dogs fed scraps and wallowing in their feces.


Last year, about two million dogs were raised and killed in South Korea, the activist group says.

This is a very ruff piece of information.

I don’t see the difference in eating dogs, as opposed to any other animals. I have a Friend from the Philippines. He eats dog when he visits home in Manila. He says it’s like goat, or lamb.

I re-submit that Christmas rant (the one about shipping all those unwanted dogs and cats to Africa to feed the starving children) every year in one form or another as a letter to the editors of the papers here.

No one's printed it yet.

I read another piece where the virtue Signalling Kenworthy deprived some poor Korean family of a meal by taking the dog home.

Never eaten dog, but I have a Canuck friend that if he ever remembers will send me some home canned Cougar meat. I have had Gator, Bear, etc.

Couger (mountain lion, around here) was better than I expected.
