Assunto:  Pra boi dormir...some ways of saying it.
 
Mensagem: 

   "Isto é história pra boi dormir..."

 

Not a translation per se, but there are some ways to convey the idea. Here are some of them:

 

  This is bulshit (this is bull),

  This is a non-credible story,

  This is a lie,

  This is just an story to grab everyones´ attention,

  Do I have to believe it? (isso é história para boi dormir...)

  Do you expect us to believe it?

  Do I have to believe in her/his sensational story?

  This is sensationalism/drama (of her/him/them)

  He/she is a drama queen (so you expect he/she being being economical with the truth...)

   I don´t believe in one single word of it/this/that...

   This is highly controversial isn´t it?

   She is exaggerating (a little bit, don´t you think?    [using a sarcastic tone] ).

   This is a fabrication...

   She often indulges in such dramatics, don´t you think?

  

 

Of course, there are hundreds more, let´s wait then.

Aniway, this is my twopence´s worth.
