Just in ..... U of M to change it's nickname
Advertisements [?]
From the Wolverines

A tough large member of the weasel family who can take down prey many times it's size to either:

"The Rented Mules" or the "The fighting Red Headed Step Child"

1. Beat it like a rented mule

To beat someone, as you would a mule that did not belong to you. Without hesitancey.

I'm gonna beat you like a rented Mule.

2. Beat it like a rented mule

To mistreat for one's own interests without fear of reprimand.

He beat that dog like a rented mule.

1. red headed stepchild

A person or group treated without the favor of birthright.

The boss treats this department like his red headed stepchildren.

2. red headed stepchild

A child who is obviously not your own, a child who is treated worse than other children in the family

I beat him like a red headed stepchild.

tags red red headed stepchild child red hair

3. red headed stepchild

One who is beaten often.

Man, he smacked her like she was a red headed stepchild!

Is it wrong for a liberal to gloat? :rofl:
