I mean, it's dumb if you think about it. Where are you even going to get horse meat? Unless if you live on a farm, or something, how do you just get a horse? Wouldn't beef or chicken be easier? And do you know how long it takes to just prepare a living horse into a meal? A long time, and by then, the hungry person would be starving.
And plus, a bull weighs more than a horse, so if you really want to express your hunger, you would say you could eat a whole lot of beef.
Or, since eating something costly and something most people like to eat wouldn't be a challenge, if you really really really wanted to express your hunger, you would say: I'm so hungry I could eat a whole five pounds of asparagus. Because, let's be honest, who in the world likes asparagus? If you're so hungry, and asparagus was the nearest food available, you would eat that.
But that's only the middle tier. If you were as hungry as I am everyday, you would say: I'm so hungry I could eat a (common household item). I'm so hungry I can eat a plate is so much better than I'm so hungry I could eat a plate of steak. Because you can eat a plate of steak anytime, but oh, the plate is where the true metal kids are.
I have too much time on my hands.
