Beating a Dead Horse

What's up with the phrase "beating a dead horse"? Why would anyone beat a dead horse? For that matter, why would anyone beat a live horse? And what's up with eating the hair of the dog that bit you? Who would even think to do that? And why are there so many ways to skin a cat? I have no idea what those ways are, but apparently there's more than one.

Well, you'd be beating a dead horse if you were really antsy to get somewhere, but your horse was so tired it actually died en route. Or maybe it was sick, whatever. But you really wanted it to get going, so you kept hitting it with the whip anyway. Even though it was dead. Basically, you're in denial that your horse is dead.

As for the cat skinning, that's just gross.

The crucial question is: When did the horse die? If you just came upon a dead horse and started beating it, then you'd be guilty of nothing more than being really odd. But if you actually beat the horse to death, and then continued beating it, you'd be on the hook for animal cruelty. And being really odd. Because that's the whole point, see. Once the horse has been killed, whether it's by natural circumstances or your own hand, it's pointless to beat it AFTER the fact of death.

What I'm trying to say is that you should get a lawyer.

That horse doesn't need tickets. It needs life.
