So are bullshots misleading or just good marketing?» —“The truth behind doctored screenshots” by Blake Snow GamePro.com Jan. 15, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)

    I think you will find “Bullshot” referenced in the Penny-Arcade blog and comic strip in 2005 (http://www.penny-arcade.com/2005/09/12) as an earlier usage. It may even be the first usage of the word, considering the influence of the Penny Arcade chaps.
