Bullshit Versus Horseshit

Bullshit is a rare and valuable commodity. The great masters have all been superb bullshitters. Horseshit, on the other hand, refers to downright crap. The free, playful, entertaining flight of ideas is bullshit, and more often than not will be found afterward to accord perfectly with universal truth. Horseshit is contrived, derivative, superstitious, ignorant.

~ Art Cleps, The Boo Hoo Bible

"Bullshit is creative, inspired myth-making intended to provoke growth, while horseshit is bottom-feeder derivative manipulation aimed at the endless acquisition of slaves, servants, and followers."

~ Alan Cabal, Village Voice
