Kerfuffle (ker-fuhf-uh l) A disorderly outburst or tumult. Kerfuffle is a humorous word for a mostly non-humorous situation: some kind of disturbance, scandal or mess. However, a kerfuffle usually isn’t 100% serious. People talking loudly in public could be making a kerfuffle. If a politician says something embarrassing by accident, it could cause a kerfuffle. Often, people use this word when they think people are making too big a deal of something, as in “What’s the kerfuffle all about?” [https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/kerfuffle]
I recently learned the word “kerfuffle” via one of my daily alerts from http://www.dictionary.com as its word of the day. Before I even read the definition, I giggled. The pronunciation of the word is so funny-sounding. It made me think of someone sneezing:
It also made me say the word quickly, several times in a row: kerfuffle, kerfuffle, kerfuffle, kerfuffle!
After reading the definition, I again started laughing and thought of rhyming words in a sentence:
Quite a kerfuffle started from all the people in a mad shuffle!
