    They have sliced horse meat at Super Foods. The first time the wife saw it I thought she was going to hurl.

The restaurant offered "cavallo" that day aka horse.

    It's all about what is accepted in each culture. To us eating Mr. Ed, Fido and Fluffy are taboo, but in other cultures it is acceptable. When we were in Thailand, we learned that in China, although against the law, tiger meat is a delicacy. Poor Tigger. Beef is taboo in some cultures or religions. Pork, and/or shellfish, bottom feeders(fish) are considered not kosher as in some other religions(think about middle eastern restaurants that are Halal). Culture and religion play a role in what we individually find acceptable.

    This is an another reason people eat what they do eat or don't eat. It's on the funny side: about 15-20 years ago while teaching a 3rd grade Social Studies lesson on communities and the environment, we brought some science into the discussion how pollution can effect our food sources. There was a cow standing in the field in the SS book. We discussed that if the cow ate grass that grew in contaminated soil or drank contaminated water(etc) that it could get into their bodies and then when we ate beef or drank milk it could be passed to us. One girl was very confused. She had no idea her burger came from a cow. She shoved her chair back, upset and wide eyed and said, "You mean when I have burger I am eating that cow with those beautiful, big, brown eyes?" She vowed never to eat beef again. My last year teaching I get called into the office. Standing there is young policewoman(she came in about DYFS call made by the school). The principal said to me-"Do you recognize __________? She was one of your students." Of course I did and reminded her of the story. She said she doesn't eat beef often.
