: Can someone please tell me the correct form of this phrase:
: "Give someone a rash of shit"
: "Give someone a wrath of shit"
: "...a raft of shit"
I think the most common usage is a "ration of shit".
This is to say, you were given a certain amount of shit, not necessarily the appropriate amount, but not necessarily not either - the bunch of shit someone gives you could be the proper ration of shit.
I think I may have heard "raft" used, but I am not actually sure of that.
