The Freakonomics guys note the preponderance of bullshit out there in the wake of Harry Frankfurt's short, pithy tome On Bullshit.
“My Life in and out of the Rough: The Truth about all the Bullshit you think you know about me.”
“100 Bullshit Jobs … and How to Get Them” by Stanley Bing.
“The Dictionary of Bullshit”
“The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit,”
“Bullshit Artist: The 9/11 Leadership Myth”
“Bullets, Badges, and Bullshit”
“Another Bullshit Night in Suck City”
“Your Call is Important to us: The Truth about Bullshit.”
“Hello, Lied the Agent: And Other Bullshit You Hear as a Hollywood TV Writer”
Disturbingly, blogger Jeff Jarvis noted a while back that our priggish FCC has seen fit to single out "bullshit" as a verbotten word http://www.buzzmachine.com/index.php/2006/03/28/in-defense-of-bullshit/. Now that's bullshit.
