There was this Chinese TV quiz show and one question was a multiple choice question about English sayings/idioms. It went something like this:
In the English idiom, someone who "eats like a [fill in the blank]" is someone who eats a lot or has a huge appetite:
(a) King (b) Mouse (c) Horse (d) Dog
I didn't think any of the four possible choices constituted an English idiom. Is one of the above four choices even an answer to the question? And if so, which is it?
Added information: The answer given in the game show was indeed "Horse". I was surprised because I have never in my life heard anyone use the expression "eat like a horse", although I have heard "eat like a king" (albeit only on a few occasions). Also I've seen dogs and horses eating, and it seems that horses eat in a calm, reasonably slow pace, whereas dogs always eat like they've been starving for days. Hence, "eat like a horse" made no sense to me at all.
