"ballshit" for "bullshit"

Here’s another “bullshit” variation. I stumbled on this one online recently. I don’t remember where.

I just started to watch and i think this is one of the biggest ballshit stories ever said´╗┐

That led to a Google search, which yielded just a few examples, such as:

Global warming… it’s ballshit!
Socially Stupid

There’s too much ballshit in the #musicindustry, fuck the falseness!
Twicsy

....A booming business
Buying, selling belief
Standing in the pews
Talking ballshit, ballshit, ballshit…
lyrics

The image I get that sort of makes sense is a ball of shit. It’s also possible that some perps, especially Brits, are confused by the similarity to “bollocks”, which literally means testicles but colloquially means something similar to “bullshit” in the UK.
