Indeed. And young children, who are just learning to read and write and out shopping with mummy, might also be shocked and confused.

Yes, I'm sure if I repeated this to the lovely Korean girl I see every week, she wouldn't find it funny either.

I half-agree. Though I highly doubt that Nigel meant any harm, it was a bit too much.

I cannot see anything insulting in what I said. Whilst I and many westerners find it distasteful, the fact is that some Koreans eat dog (and cat). If anything, I was poking fun at the ambiguities of the English language.

Nor me. I was just laughing at the fact that the signwriter was just too lazy to write Hot dog!

Koreans eating dog is a racial stereotype, like American Blacks eating watermelon or the Irish drinking too much.

I think we know you intended no insult, but perhaps you can see that some may be offended.

Given the North Korean economy and ruling regime, I'd guess they would eat almost anything.

However, while South Korea continues to produce better automobiles and electronics than the rest of the world, they probably eat better than we do!
