Conversation in the Meeting

Belgian: "We should stop talking about this now, we are just... how do you say... beating up a dead horse."
American: "Actually I like that version better."

later, Belgian: "Still we are just beating up the dead horse. How does it really mean?"
American: "Pissing off a dead horse, torturing a dead horse...."
Me: "It's beating a dead horse. The expression is beating a dead horse."

later: "If we are not too careful with these estimates, Pietr will start beating you up with a dead horse."

later: "Now we are just talking the dead horse again."

later: "Watch out for the dead horse... why do I suddenly have visions of The Godfather here....?"
