Where did the saying “bull ****” come from?

Why don’t people say “dog ****?” Or “cat ****?” Or “turtle ****?” Or “fish ****?” Oh I just realized they say “horse ****!” Or is it “whore ****?”

“Bull”, meaning nonsense, dates from the 17th century (Concise Oxford Dictionary), whereas the term “bullshit” is popularly considered to have been first used in 1915, in American slang, and to have come into popular usage only during World War II. The word “bull” itself may have derived from the Old French boul meaning “fraud, deceit” (Oxford English Dictionary). The term “bullshit” is a near synonym.

I’ve heard people say Dog Sh**…but only in the terms of “this enchilada tastes like Dog Sh**”

I think it would be fish poop.

Good question.
