There's More Than One Way To Skin A Cat

"There's More Than One Way To Skin A Cat" – I don't hear it very often, in fact, I can only remember hearing it come up in conversation a couple times… but, WOW! It's one of the most disturbing sayings I can think of.

I was at Culver's restaurant today eating a "southwest" burger (their current special, it's pretty good) and chipotle cheese curds (these are god awful! disgusting! and made me sick), when I heard someone mention skinning cats. My first thought was "…eeeew", quickly followed by "wouldn't it be just as easy and actually faster to just say `there's more than one way to do it`?"

I propose a new figure of speech to denote when there are multiple ways of doing something, a phrase that doesn't evoke mental images of animal cruelty. Maybe something like "pizza can be eaten crust first."

Much better.
