look up any word, like donkey punch:
Fartin' around the turd is a figure of speech used to imply that somebody or something is wasting time or procrastinating.

This figure of speech comes from the actions of a gaseous individual, who instead of going to the bathroom and dropping a deuce, with just sit there and fart around the turd all afternoon.
"Hey Justin, quit fartin' around the turd, these are open-air cubicles and it's starting to smell like raw sewage in here."

"Hey Joe, quit fartin around the turd and do your taxes already."
