Description:
An irreverent lexicon of the seemingly infinite ways we call bullshit, written by a 'McSweeney's 'columnist and etymologist, illustrated by a 'New Yorker'-contributing cartoonist. What's the difference between 'balderdash' and 'drivel'? Where did 'mumbo-jumbo' come from? How should you use 'meadow mayonnaise'? What's 'felgercarb' and which popular TV show coined it? There are hundreds of common and rare terms for bullshit in English, including borrowings from German, turn-of-the-century sailors, ' The Simpsons,' and beyond. Bullshit is everywhere, but not all of it is created equal. Mark Peters's 'Bullshit: A Lexicon' is the handy guide to identifying and calling BS in all of its many forms, from 'bunk' and 'claptrap' to 'applesauce' and 'gobbledygook.' Packed with historical facts, pop culture tidbits, and definitions for each term, 'Bullshit' is perfect for humor readers, language lovers, and anyone looking to describe life's everyday annoyances.
