I wanted to understand the etymological explanation of the "pucky"
in "bull-pucky" and "horse-pucky". I just wondered if the coming
volume of DARE includes "pucky" or not, but no dictionary refers to
its etymological explanation. Does it have any relation to "hocky"?
A sort of rhyming slang?
Then, what is the origin of "hocky"?
I wanted to have some clue to the above questions badly, and I wanted
to ask for your help with my question.
Thank you very very much, and I am looking for your kind advice.
