As I grew up a bit and discovered it was not necessary to use such crude language, that expression became "BS."


Q. What did It really mean when I used those expressions?
A. It meant that something was ridiculous, idiotic, a lie or just stupid. It covered any number or negative formats. The dictionary defines it as:
nonsense; especially : foolish insolent talk...

I have decided that I no longer will use either of those expressions in the future. When I have a need to express such feelings, I will use the word "Pelosi."

Let me use it in a sentence. "That's just a bunch of Pelosi."
I encourage you to do the same. It is such a good word. It really packs a lot of punch. We are no longer being vulgar. But it clearly expresses our feelings. If enough of us use it, perhaps the word could be entered into the dictionary. What an excellent legacy for the Speaker of the House!

I myself have not used the word bull sh.. but use bull dust. I remember one occaision when my elder brother came haome and with his truckie language mum said he wasn't to old to be told off and she said if he kept it up she would put pepper on his tongue.He fell asleep on the couch and was snoring and my younger sister who was 3 decided that he needed the pepper treatment and tipped the pepper pot up to pour on his tongue and the lid came off and he got a full dose and couldn't breath he nearly died. didn't cure the swearing though.

Oh my! This is perfect Soi... now what can the word Obama be used for? I have several words to choose from.

Oh and the stimulus package... gosh I'm feeling that one already and I haven't even started paying for those wonderful US citizens (or NOT) that are "entitled" to get $$$ but don't pay... oh, and that mouse in LA, gosh knows we need to protect that... and hey, that railway to LV and the dog park in Chula Vista...most definitely... PELOSI, PELOSI, PELOSI!!!! OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA...

Very eloquent Soi, I like the ring of that "Pelosi" Occasionally something will slip from my tongue but having raised 4 girls I found out anything I said would come out of their mouths so bit my tongue. I was raised where u literally got your mouth washed out with octagon soap if a bad word came rolling out. didn't take much of that to clean up my act. I never heard a bad word uttered by my grandmother not once n her entire life & she lived to b 96 yrs old. I really do not like foul language. * soi
