A situation that is totally fucked up, especially as a result of managerial incompetence.

Originally of military origin; a double play on the word "cluster," both evoking multiple fuckups, as used in the term "cluster bomb," and evoking the oak leaf or star "cluster" insignia of the REMF who did the fucking.
Military: "Fuck, I heard Wilkins bought it last night going into that 'headquarters building.' The fucker was shit empty except for the IED that blew him to hell. Took two other guys' legs off and shit. Whose goddamed idea was that whole clusterfuck, anyway?"

Civilian: "That Big Dig is a complete clusterfuck from end to end. Over budget, over due, and now under water."

Incorrect, but sounds like fun: "The three of us got together and clusterfucked all night."

British roadworks (aka Sadistic Bastards). Closing off multiple primary routes of traffic for 90 days to trim the verge, forcing the traffic load of a small town like London to use a single lane bridge to commute. Also using diversion tactics that will see someone travelling from Birmingham to London visit the Norwich coast.
Sorry I'm late for work since yesterday, it's the cluster fuck.

1. When something is a complete disaster
2. A situation that is highly unwanted
3. A word used in aggrivation at least once a day to describe the horrible trials a person may be going through (I say may because some ppl are just over dramatic)
1. Travis had to re-write his thesis paper while trying to work a job, spend time with his crazy gf, and deal with his mom. He gets everything but the paper done. looks at what needs to be done. has to write 50 pages in an hour. This would be a clusterfuck.

2. Travis gets put in a clusterfuck when his face gets farted on by his girlfriend.

3. Stagger Lee has an absolutely amazing life. He is rich, good-looking, charming, and talented. He gets dirt on his shirt one day. This would NOT be a clusterfuck. It would just be an inconvience.
