  • From the enterer: Yep. Dictionary definition. I didn't see anything in the rules that barred something from including one of those. Why shouldn't an entry begin it's life as a dictionary definition, or dicdef as you so aptly put it? Everything has a definition, after all. And it's a safe bet that when someone else runs across it, and thinks "Hey, I can make that a little better" that they will. After all, that's kinda the point of the whole website, is it not?
    • Please refer to Wikipedia:Deletion_policy, and with special notice to: "articles that could never be more than dictionary definitions, etc." I don't think horseshit merits its own article. Johnleemk | Talk 12:06, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • Luckily I wasn't the only one who didn't entirely agree with that.
  • I'd suggest instead that it be merged and redirected to bullshit, which is already more than a dictionary definition. The metaphorical uses of both terms are strongly similar. Smerdis of Tlön 15:47, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • I have added the bit about Big Trouble in Little China to bullshit, and also added a discussion of the difference between bullshit and horseshit to the bullshit page. Smerdis of Tlön 16:04, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • Enterer again: That makes much more sense than outright deletion. At least there's a reference point for the word and I can live with that. :) Thank you.
  • Good merge guys, very well done. I vote for a redirect. Also, enterer, in case you were wondering use 4 tildes (~ ~ ~ ~ without the spaces) to sign and date your posts. siroχo 21:07, Jun 23, 2004 (UTC)
    • ooh.. good info thanks! Except I'm an IP address right now. ;) No matter, at least the timestamp is nice.. 21:21, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect to bullshit, it's a minor variation on the same theme. -- Cyrius| 22:20, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Disambiguate or redirect to nonsense. anthony (see warning)

Where is the truth?[edit]

The article reads: Again one would not say "I feel like bullshit". However, Google search results show that "I feel like bullshit" is 20x more common than "I feel like horseshit". (talk) 23:23, 1 December 2019 (UTC)[reply]
