Brew - Ha Ha

funny word of the day: brouhaha

Definition from Merriam-Webster: hubbub, uproar

Definition from
1. excited public interest, discussion, or the like, as the clamor attending some sensational event; hullabaloo: The brouhaha followed disclosures of graft at City Hall.

2. an episode involving excitement, confusion, turmoil, etc., esp. a broil over a minor or ridiculous cause: A brouhaha by the baseball players resulted in three black eyes.

What I love most about funny words is that they are often defined with other funny words. Case in point: brouhaha is described as a hubbub, hullabaloo, clamor, turmoil, and a broil.
