Would you ever eat dog meat?

With all the recent talk about kimchi, I was recalling my time in Korea. Although a lot of the younger people then were repulsed by dog stew, it was still pretty popular among some of the older crowd (the men in particular ate it for virility). I couldn't bring myself to try it. Oh, I don't know. I guess if we were in a famine and had nothing else. Despite our affection for these furry critters, is it okay to breed them for consumption? What about places that are just overrun with dogs? That said, I know some Aussies that think nothing of eating kangaroo. What are your carniverous limitations?
