Summary
"An irreverent lexicon of the seemingly infinite ways we call bullshit, written by a McSweeney's and Salon columnist and etymologist, illustrated by a New Yorker-contributing cartoonist. What's the difference between balderdash and drivel? Where did "rubbish" originate from? How should you use "meadow mayonnaise" ? What's a "felgercarb" and which popular TV show invented it? Every language in the world (fictional or otherwise) has a term for bullshit. Whether it's lamenting an injustice or calling someone out on their crap, bullshit is everywhere, but not all of it is created equal. Mark Peters' 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: A Lexicon is perfect for humor readers, language lovers, and anyone looking to describe life's everyday annoyances"--
