What’s a Furlough?: TIME Explains Government Shutdown Buzzwords
Words in the news can get awfully wonky when Washington is at the center of the story

shutstorm (n.): a government shutdown marked by confusion and controversy.
The hashtag #shutstorm is currently making the rounds on Twitter, as veterans are being kept out of national war memorials and closed national parks are hemorrhaging revenue. This term is obviously a play on an excrement-based slang word which Green’s Dictionary of Slang defines as “a very confused or frightening situation.”
