ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


A shenanigan is a tricky or naughty trick. It's when someone tries to be sneaky or clever to get what they want, even if it might not be fair to others. For example, if you and your friend are playing a game and your friend does something sneaky to beat you, like hiding a card up their sleeve, that's a shenanigan.
