Dumbass Sayings: “Full of Baloney”

When you tell ask an elderly woman out on a date and tell her she looks beautiful sometimes she says “Oh you’re full of baloney!” What does baloney intake have to do with credibility? I’m familiar with the term “full of shit” but “full of bologna?” Bologna might not be the purest of the lunchmeats, but it’s far from fecal matter. Well, maybe not THAT far, but it’s one of the top 5 top selling lunchmeats of the past generation so I think it deserves some respect. Why does consuming baloney make one deceitful? This isn’t proven by fact. I think this saying stems from the phrase “phony baloney” which sounds like an Oscar Meyer sex hotline. That’s another completely absurd saying that was probably started by children that has now permeated into adult culture. If someone says you’re full of baloney that’s basically just the adult version of someone calling you a “phony baloney.” No one should be calling anyone a “phony baloney.” Not only does it sound silly, but there’s just no hard science linking beef and pork sausage with any apocryphal or fraudulent behaviors or activity.

There are some fancy bolognas so I take it as a compliment.
