Why the use of the name Josh? Is this a biblical reference to Joshua (is he a known liar in the Bible?? -not a biblical scholar). Just curious as to the origin of this phrase. I am familiar with it, but heard it used in a movie I watched recently and it led me to wonder whyy Josh is the liar, not Bill, Ted, or John. Enjoy. Comment by: Timtimes

"Joshing" is used all the time on the west coast of Scotland, south of Glasgow. It's not really spread that far outside that, as in Northern England-ers won't know it, and glasweigens won't know it. But, it's used constantly. "You joshin'?" or "Naw just joshin' ya" or the likes. Comment by: MJN   
I like to say "you shitting me?" as in are you bullshitting me. I don't know bout anyone else but this seems to be a more popular term. Comment by: joe
