A gigantic cluster fuck... but not in a military sense.

A huge fuck-up of epic proportions of some sort or another and its ensuing calamity. As in, the person or normal situation you were supposed to be a part of is now so totally screwed up as to turn the entire scenario into a farce; or something that could end up in you going to either jail or losing your profession.
Holy shit... I went into the office today, and I was fully unprepared for the ensuing shitstorm. This client was so fucked up, I couldn't believe that I was actually part of this human tragedy. I think I will give up finance and take up digging ditches.

A course of action that would appear to lead to a good outcome, but when undertaken, leads to a situation that is utterly out of control beyond human comprehension.

A situation where oneself or something of value to self becomes attacked by a large quantity of basically crap, which must be fended off at a high rate in order to return the system to normal.

A discussion about something totally pointless and inane that got out of hand and now consists of people fighting over nothing.
Basically like a flamewar, just that the discussion itself, as well as the participants, are so utterly stupid that it's impossible to put into words. Shitstorms like these always tend to be really easy to start, even when you don't want it - just like an avalanche, one false step (or word) can be enough to set free a shitstorm of epic proportions. One easy example for this is the ongoing console-fanyboy war.

When a tornado hits an exposed septic tank and sends all the contents into the air, where it falls down in a rain-like pattern.
Idiot 1: Dude, there is crap all over the place!
Idiot 2: I know man, that tornado went straight for my house's septic tank and produced a shitstorm.
Idiot 1: I can tell you are a fan of corn.
