Obvious Observation

It doesn't matter how often you poke it with a stick: a dead animal's still dead, and it ain't gettin' up no more.

For something so obvious, you'd be amazed how seldom it registers.

What about Frankenstein? Eh? Eh?

Didn't think about that, did ya? Yeah, thought so.


PS - What are we talking about?

It could be a possum.

They really do that, you know.

However, to the best of my knowledge, no dead horse has ever been improved by beating...

I've been known to beat dead cows on occasion. What can I say? I buy cheap cuts. And I always beat dead chickens when i make stuffed breasts. I bet you could improve horse meat too, with some well directed blows.

I can't stand it.

Actually, I saw a possum play dead once. It was pretty funny. I was walking a friend's dog, and the dog ran around the corner of the house, barking like crazy. There was a possum, lying still, pretending to be dead. Every time the dog stopped barking, the possum would open an eye to see if we were still there, then close it really fast. I thought it was hilarious, but I doubt the possum did.
