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*

or

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

General uproarious fooling around meant to engender cascades of hilarty in the viewers as well as in those engaged in such riotous behavior.
"I know you guys are havin' fun," bellowed Old Man Hornaday, "but I'd be pleased if you'd take the shenanigans somewheres else if you don't mind."

Mischievous activites.
Now commonly used by hipsters to in place of fun trying to seem cool. Instead they look like douchebags.
Hipster 1: We were in SoHo and got into some shenanigans!

Hipster 2: That sounds so fun!

Non-Hipster: SHUT THE FUCK UP DOUCHEBAGS!

Usually the result of a bizarre night or encounter that ends in some timeless story.
The other night I bartended at this frat only to wake up the next morning in the attic with three topless girls and no memories... I wonder how I get myself into this type of shenanigans?

A: Dude I know this guy who can get us in to this party at this club in Miami for New Years break.
K: No way! I can only imagine what kind of shenanigans we can get in to.

or the classic...
I have to tell you about my shenanigans the past few weeks

Random adventures of an often silly and/or odd nature undertaken after having consumed too much red bull/V/any other caffeinated beverage, and aften carried out at the very early hours of the morning with fellow red bull/V/caffeinated beverage drinkers.
Person 1 - So I gave up on my homework by 3am, after drinking a whole lot of V, and Fred, sue and I went on random shenanigans
Person 2 - such as...?
Person 1 - taking random photos of ourselves standing next to post boxes with postage stamps stuck on our faces...
Person 2 - WTF?
