Why do people say Bullshit?
You’re talking bullshit!
Why does nobody ever say, You’re talking dog-shit?
I mean, as shit goes, bullshit is probably among the less offensive forms. Cat-shit is a lot worse, and have you ever seen alligator shit?
Somebody told me once that if you could get a bag of lion-shit from the zoo and scatter it around the place, you’d never have rats. I suppose that’s because rats and lions are natural enemies in the wild, or perhaps it’s because rats are extremely squeamish. I don’t know.
But why bullshit, or occasionally, horse-shit?
Is it a cultural thing? Is it to do with beasts of burden?
Do people in the Middle East accuse each other of talking camelshit?
Or maybe up the side of the Himalayas, some Sherpa is cursing at another Sherpa. Don’t give me that fucking Yak-shit!
I don’t know. Sometimes I think I’m going batshit crazy, and that’s when I go completely ape-shit.
