Although the other definitions make sense, I've always associated a different meaning to this term. Bullshit Baffles Brains is a military term, I first heard it in the army thirty years ago. Rather than an attempt to deceive a third party, it is a description of the way the officers (management) and procedures are so filled with unnecessary and pointless bullshit, that they defy all logic and the fact that our glorious leaders had totally bought into that bullshit.
They want use to parade for the combat exercise in our best uniforms and change into our battle gear once we get into the field, talk about bullshit baffles brains.
