Sorry, Jesse, you are, of course, correct! I must have had a typo in the
search... or typed "shit brickhouse"... or something

Any chance the specific "Eat shit and die!" will make it? "Eat shit" is a
recent addition (2006) and does not show up in the sense "Go away! Never
want to see you again!" or just plain "I hate you!"
