Mom went for supper tonight at the Italian place a block over from our house. They had the tv on and it was tuned in to CNN. They were talking to this Senator (I think) from Utah about taxes and stuff and they asked him a question and his response was "Well, there is more than one way to skin a cat". Mom actually made an audible gasp! ( Good thing she was late and they weren't very crowded) It just kind of shocked her to hear someone actually say it. Do you mean that this educated man could not find a more appropriate phrase?
How about "there are other possibilities" "it may require us to think outside the box" or "who moved my cheese?". Come on, anything but skinning cats!

Ouch! That was a bad choice of words! I don't blame your Mommy one bit! Too bad if someone heard. Anyone who can't understand why that's offensive wouldn't deserve an explanation anyway. I hope your Mommy had a nice dinner though. My Mommy is Italian and eats it almost every night! But I am ok eating Fancy Feast.
Hey Fancy feast if our food of choice too. Skin a cat! great balls of fire! what was he thinking? Mom would have been mad too! who would want to skin a cat!
Well, it would have been more appropriate to say there is more than one way to kick a dog! MOL!
MOL, obviously dat dood isn't a kitty lover like we R, so ignore him, probably jus' slip o' da tongue. sheesh. Probably a dog lover...Ha!~ Mom tries not to let anythan' anyfur sez annoy or get her upset. Jus' da way o' da silly world, her sez!!
But, yeah dey shouldn't get kitties involved! Lack o' edukashon to sez da least!!!
Purrs 'n love,
How horrible!! Just a disgrace!
Mom says that is a saying that could be forgotten if you ask her.
