Ok, ok! I can't hold back any longer!
Back in the early '70s, my former UCLA linguistics chum Michael O'Brien and
I were exchanging frequent letters, especially when we hit on a new idea of
CONNIDITIES -- CONNected IDiomatic ambiguITIES, and the discussion on 'bum
steer' got so perilously close to one of our connidities that I have to post it:
After shooting the bull for awhile, Max gave Slim a bum steer.
This should handle both the advice and object meaning alluded to earlier.
