: : Way to shake a stick at a dead cat.
: : I found this in the archives as an appraisal of the-then current state of the site, but don't quite understand the meaning in this particular use.
: : Your explanations will be very much appreciated.
: I don't know. But I am guessing that someone was making a joke -- blending together two phrases. More than one way to skin a cat. More (work, phrases or whatever) than we can shake a stick at.
Or, alternatively, "not enough to shake a stick at." Don't hear that much these days.
