A display of ridiculousness. This ridiculousness could be measured in alcohol consumption, or by other controlled substances that is causing a group of people to look like idiots. It is not a "show," yet a display of behavior that is unappealing to the innocent bystander who wishes to not take part in such ridiculousness.
Everyone in that bar is drunk and acting like idiots, it looks like a total shit show in there-let's bounce.

Marlee: Like I said, what a shitshow.
