about Bukowsky's bullshit
Quiero poner este título a una pagina FaceBook, pero no sé si es una especie de traducción de:

"Sólo hueveandosobre las payasadas de Bukowsky."
O algo parecido.
Creo haber leído todo lo que Bukowsky ha publicado y lo considero uno que ha "aggarrado pal chuleteo" la vida y la ha aprovechado así. Y que no sea necesario ponerse tan serios y cultos cuando se habla de él.
¿Qué dicen?

No hay nada tan angustiante como el silencio.
Toda pregunta merece una respuesta, una aclaración, un reproche, una corrección, un algo. No el silencio.

Estoy de acuerdo, tu pregunta merece una respuesta. Lo siento que no puedo darte una, ya que no sé cuál sería una expresión equivalente.

Formal = Hablando bobadas/sandeces, pendejadas
Arg : JHablando boludeces

Eufemismos :
Hablando pura caca.
