Tell the folks in the lab that contrary to rumor, we actually have none to give them. The ones that were reputed dead on this site have not, as yet, assumed room temperature. Admittedly, they have been beaten enough that they **should,** be deceased, and, as such, everyone seems to have assumed that they are so. Amazingly, however, said horses keep squirming, kicking, getting back up and trying to force the Ministry of Truth's narrative back on us . . . and so, the incessant beatings have, unfortunately, become a necessary evil.
Tell them we'll get back to them once the horses actually expire. Until then, tell them to beware of sketchy rumors.
