a lot of baloney

a lot of baloney

Falsehoods, nonsense, or foolishness. Baloney in this sense might have originated from the word "blarney," which means flattering or nonsensical talk; more usually it refers to bologna sausage, which is blended from different meats, therefore implying content of inferior or dubious quality. Primarily heard in US. Don't give me that excuse, it's just a lot of baloney. Dave acts like he's smooth with the ladies, but it's a lot of a baloney.
