    Why not?  It's just cultural conditioning as to what is acceptable to eat and what is not.

    People in many cultures -- including China -- eat pork (pig/swine) and it is forbidden in other cultures -- the Arab Muslims and orthodox Jews.

    It's hard for most Western Europeans and North Americans to accept, but dogs are just another edible animal.  Ditto cats and horses.

    BRITANNUS (shocked):

    Caesar, this is not proper.

    THEODOTUS (outraged):


    CAESAR (recovering his self-possession):

    Pardon him, Theodotus; he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
