I can eat a horse

Meaning/Usage: To express the desire to eat a lot of food.

Explanation: One explanation is that there is a lot of meat on a horse.  Also not many people eat horses, but they would if they are very hungry.  Combining the willingness to eat a large quantity of meat, and the willingness to eat meat that is not normally eaten suggests that the person is extremely hungry.
