    This thread is beginning to sound like a bunch of 8th grade Junior High (British -Middle School, Second Form, or is it Year 8 now) boys.

    So: bollocks, roughly equivalent to us using “bullshit”? Or different?

    I’ve heard the Brits say, “That’s bollocks,” as in, “that’s a load of shit.”

    Well yes and no, depending on how it’s used.
    “That’s a load of bollocks” = That’s a load of bullshit
    “Bollocks to that” = Fuck that
    And yes the “Dog’s bollocks” = good ( because the dog likes licking them)

    Fuck is still the best, I know it's been covered though.

    As in, "that watch @vujen listed? That watch FUCKS!" (If you watched 'silicon valley', you'll get the reference)

    However, if you want a 4-letter word that isn't a curse but just as expressive: DUDE

    Bollocks on its own can also have slightly different meanings. I guess it does literally translate as balls (which we also use).

    Person 1, “Paddy Bamford is going to get 10 goals over the rest of the season”. Person 2 “Bollocks” (you’re talking rubbish/no he isn’t).

    ‘Dropping a glass which smashes’. Bollocks! (Fuck/damn).

    And lets not forget bollocking/bollocked which means a telling off/told off

    As in

    My wife gave me a right bollocking for forgetting her birthday

    I bollocked my son for not reminding me.
