My New Favorite Word

Who says that you can't learn anything from cable television? I just learned a great new word watching Shaun of the Dead again. with the captioning on.

sham·bol·ic adj. Chiefly British Slang

Disorderly or chaotic: “ [The country's] transportation system is in a shambolic state” (London Sunday Times).

[Probably from alteration of shambles.]

sham·boli·cal·ly adv.

(I am also starting to believe that it wasn't a hurricane that hit New Orleans but zombies. The drivers here are terrible right now - quite shambolic.)

I like your word!
LOL. Yes, I would say most of the fallout from Katrina is shambolic.

Re: I like your word!
The reaction from FEMA immediately after Katrina was shambolic and shameful.
