Official Bullshit Meter: Who’s Full of Crap?

When I was in high school, I remember a catalogue filled with gag gifts and one of the items they sold was an official bullshit meter. Since we were all basically full of crap back then, and of course we knew it all, we ordered multiple bullshit meters and used them every time someone said something we thought was bullshit. I went to a competitive private high school where everyone was college bound. You can imagine how vicious it could get.
