Just in case it was on your to-do list for your next vacation to China, the communist nation has decided to end a 600-year-old tradition of eating dogs at a Jinhua City annual festival. Several reasons have been cited, from animal cruelty (the dogs are tortured and strangled before being killed and eaten) to increasing Western influence on Eastern culture, to today’s kids just being too lazy to take the time to properly season their dog so the flavor just jumps out at you.
Too much salt will just RUIN the recipe.
Many elderly villagers say they are not happy the tradition is ending, as it is something that has been passed on through literally dozens of generations. It’s a valid point, but all that’s needed is one visit from Sarah McLachlan for them to disavow pup-peroni forever and embrace burgers like everybody else.
You cried. Fuck you, yes you did.
