The act of bodily thowing a person out of a window. Defenestration is best executed from a third story (glass) window as it breaks bones but allows the defenestree to limp away.
Defenestration first officially happened at the Defenestration of Prague in 1618, leading to the start of the 30 years war.
"I was told not to shoot the king's messenger, so I defenestrated him; he broke both legs. I do believe the king got the message."
"Gee, Larry, I haven't seen a good old-fashioned defenestration in a while."
