What Exactly is BS?

Category: Quickies

Q:

Long-time Tourbus reader Earl sent in this gem:

Hello Bob, I just love what you're doing, for yourself and others... always solving, evolving, and so calming... you are a plain and simple wizard... Just as an aside, I once used the term BS in a sixth grade classroom. Of course, one student had the gumption to ask me what did BS mean...



A:

I told him to ask his parents... he told me he knows what they think it means, he wants to know what I think it means...

I stuttered and stammered, hemmed and hawed, and pondered openly with great fanfare, until finally, in one of those flashes of desperate inspiration that comes over me from time to time, just before the bell rang, I announced quite confidently to all that BS means "Bovine Secretions" - and challenged every student to look it up for themselves.

God bless you in all your endeavors... Earl J.
