I don't think I'll post them, but in my drivers license photo I look like a drug addict. In my passport photo I look like a phycho killer. There's also a photo that I used in various online applications where I look like an evil mastermind ... much like you do in that photo.

This must mean that I'm actually a nice guy

In many parts. Although the meat is quite average.

A bad criminal. As opposed to a good criminal?

And Laos and a couple of Thai provinces along the Laos border. Except for those two provinces the Thai do not eat dogs, but the people of Northeastern Thailand eat just about anything else that walks, crawls, flies or swims.
Every now and then the Thai press reports the police have stopped yet another convoy of trucks heading for Vietnam with a cargo of live canines.

In China some restaurants hang skinned dog carcasses outside to dry in the sun. The strange thing is that in some cities dog meat is exorbitantly priced. My guess is the people in those areas consider it a delicacy. I do not know why, since the meat is pretty band. Unlike crocodile, which is delicious.

My grandma told me that during WWII here also rats were considered delicatessen.

let me say that I consider myself lucky, because I can choose what to eat, many people can't do it (if they got any food at all).

Which animals are considered food, which pets and which unclean, is culturally determined. Hindus do not eat cow, Jews and Muslims do not eat pig, North Americans and Europeans do not eat dog and cat, whale is (surprise) eaten by coastal populations. That does not mean dog, pig and/or cow is food for the impoverished. Except for creatures whose flesh is poisonous, there are no animals that should or should not be eaten. That "choice" is made by one's culture.

I tried snake, dog, but they are not our regular food. Some people here think they are very good supplement for their body in winter cold season. I swear I will not try dog meat any more because I am not comfortable eating them. But for snake, why not? People eat frog here, but I dislike frog meat and never touched them.

You know I was in the OR once and they were removing a gallbladder with an electrocauter. The smell of frying liver was delicious ... my stomach was growling.
