2. Euphemism, noun (see shit storm)
I'm in a shart storm of trouble for calling my boss a dick licker.
Interchangeable with shitstorm but as a more polite term. Often used to describe a very large amount of something as a problem (or otherwise negatively) that arrived (or otherwise was made present) mostly at once.
Often, the supposed shartstorm will be due to an initial event that causes it, such as an idea that catches on fast once learned that it's allowed -- or a question is asked that is most certain to provoke loads of comments.
Many who find swearing unacceptable in their own speech, will use shartstorm as a technique to express the shitstorm concept more politely.
