German linguists can't do without 's**tstorm'

You're welcome, Germany.

But German speakers are not alone; even we English speakers sometimes find that "shitstorm" is the only word that will do.

I humbly submit this slight variant to the lexicon: "shitastrophe."

UPDATE (07.09.2013): Here's the latest on shitty German lexicography: "The German Dictionary Has A New Fun Word, Thanks To The Internet And The Eurozone Crisis."  Apparently shitstorm (Schei├česturm?) is one of Merkel's favorite words.
