"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Soiled Linen


Recently, a friend and I have been covering all of the wonderful sayings that involve the word “shit.”

Like: Shit or get off the pot, you gotta be shittin’ me, and I don’t give a shit. Also: shithead, shitheel, shitface–or shitfaced; shit for brains, shitkicker, horseshit, bullshit, dogshit, cowshit, ratshit, batshit (thank you, George Carlin); full of shit, piece of shit, pile of shit, tub of shit, and crock of shit. How about shit-eating-grin? That’s a good one. So is shit a brick, shit on a shingle, shoot the shit, fuck that shit, and good ol’ up shit’s creek?

Oh, shit.

One of my favorites is “shit the bed.” As in, Hiroki Kuroda really shit the bed last night. And he did, giving up home runs and putting his team in a shithole from which they would not emerge. Tough shit, huh? Even when they had a 2 out rally late in the game, down 5 runs, Chris Stewart nailed a line drive to left, sure to score at least 1 of the 2 runners on base, the ball was caught and the Yanks were shit out of luck.

So, to recap, how was the game last night?


Final Score: Rays 7, Yanks 2.

Tonight, C.C. really needs to get his shit together.

and wasn't it Carlin who explained you don't take a shit, you leave it.

on a related note: the French have a lot of great words, but merde is among the best.
Merci, pour le word, merde, Francois!

Francais, that is.
Sliced Pain is a tet de la merde.

1) Yeah his routine was great. Give a shit--like it's worth something.

Also, the old joke about the worm hanging out of the bird's ass: "You wouldn't shit me, would ya?"

Best recap ever!

I think you can add: shit-stain

Col. Bruce calls people a "shithook". Not bad.

You forgot The Wire's favorite: shitbird.

9 Sliced Bread   ~  Aug 24, 2013 11:22 am

ah, you guys don't know shit from Shinola

10 cult of basebaal   ~  Aug 24, 2013 11:38 am

The Rays still playing at "The Trop"?

That place's a shitheap.

11 monkeypants   ~  Aug 24, 2013 12:59 pm

[10] Or a shithole.

12 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 24, 2013 2:49 pm

Always thought that "you don't know fuck about shit" said emphatically was one of the ultimate insults.

13 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Aug 24, 2013 2:54 pm

And the term "shit the bed" just bothers me, don't know why. Conjure up an image of CC shitting the bed...need I say more?

14 Greg G   ~  Aug 24, 2013 5:34 pm

The Yanks are going to make the postseason. I shit you not.

15 Sliced Bread   ~  Aug 24, 2013 8:19 pm

Is the shitstorm over?
