Brendy, i generally hate etnic and racial humor, but sometimes one comes along that I can't help but laugh at. So my apologies in advance to any and all for the following.

MARTA is the Metro Atlanta Regional Transit Authority and Michael lives in Atlanta. Its becoming an excellent rapid transit system, but for many years its main patrons were Atlanta's black population and some wag came up with.....(sorry) Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta. Just always cracked me up.

So Michael, where in Hotlanta are you? Karen and I got married on the square in "Mayretta" back in '86.

Well, I'm in Inman Park, a block away from a MARTA station...

I gather BS stands for the obvious, which is Wink, or TIC (tongue-in-check), or just not true...but the threads that have this in front of them weren't really that way, it seemed.

Actually, what Joe mentioned--breeze shooting--is probably the most accurate way to look at it. Of course we all know that "bullshit" is the original word that BS indicates, but it has different shades of meaning. MichaelA's second post listed some of them. Here it essentially refers to something that's not the stated business at hand (folk and blues music), similar to having a "bull session" at college (instead of discussing studies) or "shooting the breeze" around the office water cooler (instead of talking about work). So I would say it means bullshit in the sense of breeze shooting.

oh.. in Glasgow a "BS" is a "Boady Swerve" - originally a jinking manoeuvre used in football to evade a tackle, but now used to mean any nifty piece of footwork to avoid an undesirable confrontation.

"Ah hink the Big Man's gied us a boady swerve!"
