look up any word, like ratchet:
1) In a sticky situation, that is of great danger or potential embarrassment.

2) When something goes wrong and no other word can explain the annoyance.....Flumox
"Oh Flumox I forgot to clean out the fish... now he's gone..."
"So you lost the car in a bet..... What a flumox!"
