a sham; a trick. This is a stronger alternative to the word 'sham', and is utilised in situations where something is not simply a sham, but is so serious that it is a 'shamatron'. 'Shamatron' should only be used by those notorious enough to handle it.
'shamatron' can be used as both a noun to state a situation - 'that recliner deal was just a shamatron' or as an adjective - 'that's a shamatron of a mushroom!'.
