The best. This word is very interesting. The important part of it is without THE, an entirely different meaning applies. My teacher is shit= bad teacher. My teacher is THE shit = greatest teacher

The best. Originated as a term to describe high quality drug substances. IE, "this is good shit."

Evolved to common usage for any item of high quality. However, in typical usage, the article "the" is required to denote superiority. Without the word "the" prefacing the word "shit," a different, usually negative, meaning applies.
This joint is the shit./This is potent marijuana.
His new car is the shit./His car is excellent.

This joint is shit./This is poor quality marijuana.
His new car is shit./His new car is not desirable.

Is a way of saying diarrhoea or violent shitting. The shits involves sitting on the toilet pan and basically shitting out your guts in liquid form. It's like pissing shit out your anus in other words. The shits is not a very pleasant experience unless your a complete shit loving wierdo who enjoys urinating brown liquid out of his/her ass. The shits has many different causes. One of them is by eating food with a very hot pepper sauce on it. After eating extremely spicy food, the explosive diarrhoea experience is even worse than usual. The inside of the ass cheeks burn something awful and it is like someone has shoved a flame thrower up your rectum and pressed the trigger. The shits can also be caused by food poisoning (eating something that is not cooked properly). In this case vomiting may also happen.
''Aw dude, I was eating this unbelievably hot curry with extra hot sauce and I had the shits for like a week''

''I need the toilet, I can tell this is going to be the shits''

Q - ''What's the shits?''
A - ''Explosive diarrhoea dude''

Q - ''What's that awful smell man?''
A - ''Aw sorry dude I had the shits''

Q - ''Wanna hang out?''
A - ''Sorry I can't, I'm having the shits''
