Don’t Look a Gift Horse…

As a student of ESL and classics, a lot of things baffled me. One of them is the phrase up here and another is a story of a Roman lad who hid a Vulture in his coat but vehemently denied stealing it until the cannibal made a good meal of his lungs.  He was forever venerated afterwards.

I have suspected this phrase has something to do with the Trojan War but can’t keep from asking why they didn’t just look the damn horse in the mouth.

The Trojans may have discovered the horse can’t do this…
