I enjoy finding the meaning of various phrases and colloquialisms. Normally, a short Internet search reveals the origins. The one that has eluded me is the origin of “Screw you and the horse you rode in on.” I have always wondered what the circumstances were that led up to the creation of that phrase. I am certain it will, in no way, live up to my expectations but I still would like to know.
“The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the state.” - Tacitus
