Another word for pranks or jokes. When people are messing around and tricking people, it is often referred to as a shananigan.
Our shananigans are fun and original while theirs are cheezy and lame.

The next step after kanoodling. All sexual activity with the exception of actual intercourse. Includes above and below waist activity such as all oral pleasuring. Sometimes shananigans are necessary in order to get to the finagling stage.
After a lovely evening of kanoodling in front of the fire, we had crazy shananigans but refrained from f*cking.
