  • Don't know the answer. Don't want points but I wanted to say I will be interested in reading the responses. Great question.
  • There is also a term "chickenshit", but has a different meaning (petty administrative details). The origin of "bullshit" is obscure like most scatological terms. Somebody said it, others thought it sounded cool and it just took off. +3
  • There's a hell of a lot more bullshit in bullshit than there is birdshit in birdshit.
  • hmmm, thats a good question, maybe because bull shit stinks and it is a pain to step in. and when someone is "bullshitting" you, its usually pretty annoying and a pain to hear... I know that cat shit and bird shit can suck too. but bull shit sounds like more of a load to deal with... i cant give you a definate answer but that is what i would guess.
  • Maybe this will help, not too much though. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?search=bullshit&searchmode=none
  • +6 good point
  • Have you ever seen a bull shit..that's a whole lot of shit..that shit is deep you need a 10 pound shovel. Its kind of like Horse shit..and it really stinks:)
  • I'm glad this is a Sirius question. It was made for me. I've never used the word bullshit or even horseshit. I use Holyshit quite often and now will be sent to total damnation for it.....
  • Bulls produce an inordinate amount of it. Birds and cats, make hardly any.
  • Because the origin of the word s*** goes all the way back to the Old testament of the Bible. There was a certain group of people called the shittites whose method of attacking you in battle was to get naked and roll around in the manure of a bull. Because it was extra stinky. Hence we have developed the word b*******. Which was it description of what they did.
    • mugwort
      where is that in the Bible Sounds like Bullshit to me.
    • Arimatthewdavies
      The early Old testament mentions that group of people it doesn't describe what they did but I'm a Bible theologian and skilled in history of the Bible and ancient civilizations so I was able to tell you how the word came into being
  • What you state truly has happened through all of time, that one person or other would want to break from traditional vulgarities, and there you go. It was never a new idea where it is clever and a good mix for it all. Bull squat is much grosser than birdshit or catshit.
    • Arimatthewdavies
      Yes you're correct there has been many tribes of Indians that have found out that attacking naked covered with feces puts well let's say a rather stinky terror into the heart of whoever they're attacking
    • WHF, What's His Face
      Leaving off how the white man killed so many Indians is a bullshit thing too ya know?
