: Im sure all of us have heard someone say "bull s h i t" at one time or another. But where does "bull s h i t" come from? Someone let me know... thanx in advance.

It probably comes from someone stepping in it.

Bullsh*t -- the noun meaning lies, nonsense, exaggeration, or flattery; trickery or tomfoolery (usually considered vulgar) has a citation in 1866. "Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, Volume 1, A-G" by J.E. Lighter, Random House, New York, 1994.
