: Where does the phrase "wolf bait" come from? I know it means to defecate, but, I'm wondering if people actually ever used it for trying to catch a wolf, or what it might mean.

I have always believed that 'wolf bait' was an epithet used for girls who dress or act in such a manner as to attract wolves--that is, predators of the type that whistles at girls, or mashers.
