But That May Not Have Been The Point In Question

An aspiring author of my acquaintance was recently questioned on his use of the phrase, “You couldn’t swing a dead cat around without hitting something.”

Always eager to provide feedback and support, I offered my opinion that it would be too cumbersome to say, “You couldn’t swing an initially alive, but soon quickly dead cat around,” so I advised him to stick with the original as written.
