definition of the word shenanigan

by the Wiktionnary

Uncertain in origin. These have been suggested:

Singular
shenanigan

Plural
shenanigans

shenanigan (plural shenanigans)

  1. Trickery, games; skulduggery. To "call", "claim" or "declare" shenanigans is to rhetorically and ironically label something as officially deceitful, improper, or otherwise incorrect.
    "The advertisement said it would cost $50 but they charged me $75 at the register. I declare shenanigans." The speaker passes off the statement as having some sort of implied official effect, but in reality, it is simply a complaint.
  2. A deceitful confidence trick, or mischief causing discomfort or annoyance. Often the term is used in the plural: shenanigans. The word may have come from the Irish language, however in some regions, shenanigans can merely be harmless mischievous play, especially by children.
    You should learn to spot their shenanigans and avoid being fooled.
