This phrase and its related themes are frequently voiced by Maul Talkers. The gist is that members of the public allegedly cannot identify a pit bull, despite the massive amount of press coverage (yielding 400,000 search results) of the Vick dogs and groups such as Best Friends and Bad Rap continuing to parade these pit bulls in front of the public via TV shows and more. Pit nutters go to elaborate lengths to trick members of the public into believing that they cannot identify a pit bull by creating “Find the Pit Bull” websites as well. A far more realistic Find the Pit Bull Test is located at DogsBite.org.
Variations include: 1.) Do you even know what a pit bull is? 2.) A pit bull is not a breed of dog, and 3.) Would you know a pit bull if you saw one?
