What is the origin of the term "shit-eating grin"? Sure, some people have a fetish for feces, but I'm sure that for most people, shit eating and grinning do not go together at all...

To be honest (and I have been unable to find any backup to this, though I have looked quickly) I think it comes from an expression about the grin of a baby that has got it's hands on the contents of it's diapers.

You should know that cute little grin that babys get when they are doing something fun, especially when they don't know how icky what they are doing is.

fraerie has a story about when her parents caught her eating garden snails, they did not stop her (there are health reasons why they should), they went and got a camera.
