Slinging the Bull


The verb — to sling — is key. You do not offer bullshit. You do not put it forth. You sling it. Keep in mind that slinging, as an action, requires a loose arm and a relaxed attitude. It’s a careless action, and should be fun for both you and the recipient, although probably more fun for you if they’re not expecting it and are forced to receive it with their guard down.
