The name of a game played 24/7/365 by people who know of its existence. The game is played by first saying "Shenanigans", then, the person who said it is allowed to hit or otherwise hurt anyone within earshot of them at the time that they said it. The main target tends to be the groin on males and the chest on females. People who are within earshot when "Shenanigans" is said must say the word "Mulligan" as soon as they hear it to prevent being a target. If someone is hit either before or while you are saying the word "Shenanigans" or after they have said "Mulligan", you are considered to have cheated and they get a free hit on you. Note that saying "Shenanigans" lasts indefinately until each person within earshot has said "Mulligan"
Bob: "SHENANIGANS!" *smacks Tom in the groin*


*Bob hits Tom in the groin*
Tom: oooh, that's a free hit! *smacks Bob in the groin without penalty.*

Another way to call BS.
"Would you like to call shenanigans?"
"Yes Alex, I'll take shenanigans for 400."

Used as an interjection, "Shenanigans!" denotes a person or event suspect of unscrupulous or dishonest conduct. If one believes they bear witness to such an occurrence, they should immediately call "shenanigans!" to draw attention to it.
There's no way he could have done that by himself...I call shenanigans!

Shenanigans is the universal law of the universe, the law consist of just uttering the word shenanigans and any argument you are in you automatically win no question's asked.
The rule of shenanigans can be summed up as "I Win, You Lose, Fuck You!"
If you are getting robbed and the robber has a gun to your head, and you call shenanigans. The robber is obligated to put the gun down and walk away.

"Why the hell is there a bomb in your luggage?"
"Oh Snap! Hurry up then, the planes about to leave..."
