|Oh, bovine scat!|
|By Joe Bouchard|
The following is an installment in "Icebreakers 101 - Volume IX: UNDAMMING THE ICE", a series featuring "Ice Breaker's" designed to promote training awareness and capabilities in the corrections industry.
Hardly an accurate description of cow excrement, B.S. has crept into our language as an idiom that suggests disbelief. It is not used commonly as a warning to tread cautiously near the cow barn. As an exclamation, it says in a colorful (and organic) way the word “LIAR!”.
For example, a known liar declares that he won a huge lottery pot. You doubt the veracity of his tale due to experience with this prevaricator. Your first inward thought is Bovine Scat, or something rather close. Other times, a gut reaction can spur disbelief as a way to inspire caution.
Break the class into groups of four and have them discuss the most memorable and fantastic story that they have been told. Then they report out.
There are many examples. Among these are tales of bravado, fighting stories, yarns about how much money a person allegedly has, and accounts of sexual conquests.
There are many different sorts of liars and they are linked to the idea of persuasion. And to dissect this and apply this to or vocation, we can ask a series of questions. Following is a progression of discussion points to achieve this:
Corrections is a vocation that has us think critically. In other words, just because we see or hear something, it does not mean that is what happened. I once heard a mentor state that if a person is talking, they are either telling the truth or not. This is actually deeper than it seems. But, the ability to say Bovine Scat in your head during a verbal interchange may prompt thinking that helps enhance safety.
