Overview

Companion to the bestselling Big Book of Filth!

This gives bad taste a whole new meaning! An unabashed scat-fest supplies colorful and inventive metaphors, idioms, and euphemisms, along with their etymological origins, for every imaginable corporal emission, whether solid, liquid, or gaseous. Drawing on prison jargon, street lingo, college colloquialisms, and classical literature, a leading slang lexicographer turns his attention to defecation, ejaculation, belches, boogers, and breaking wind. More than 4,500 salacious synonyms for anal, urinary, genital, and oral functions—and malfunctions—display the verbal ingenuity of slangsters through the ages. Not only do hundreds of listings, from the mundane, 18th-century "ca-ca" to the picturesque "chocolate iceberg," elucidate the section on defecation, but there are a multitude of expressions for special occasions—5 synonyms for difficult emissions, 18 for dingleberries, 8 for skidmarks, and 31 examples of rhyming fecal slang. An equally explicit section on body parts, from brainbox to old black joe (head to toe) and everything in between, completes the volume.
