...or misplaced apostrophes? ;-)

It's quite normal to look at cultural differences with a sense of humor, but can be a bad thing if it's meant hatefully. It's hard to determine a person's intentions/motives just from song lyrics. I'm not convinced this isn't an urban legend. I know people eat dogs in some places, but I've never heard of a culture incorporating cat cuisine. What about bugs? In many cultures/countries/places, people eat bugs. It seems weird to those of us who don't eat bugs. And if someone from a non-cheese-eating culture wants to make fun of mine in a song about people who eat microorganism-infested, fermented, mostly-dehydrated products from cow squeezin's, I'll probably laugh along with them.
