|1.||plain old fashioned bullshit|
Lying, cheating, stealing, bluffing, etc, in an obvious yet difficult to defeat manner. Usually everyone is aware of this type of bullshit when it occurs, but cannot stop it due to the fact that people using it usually are in a position of power, ie managers, marketing reps, etc.
This is opposed to the new type of bullshit which is much more common these days, in which one tries to be as low key and stealthy as possible.
John, your reason for hiring your brother was some plain old fashioned bullshit and you know it.
