A noun meaning "a loud noise" or "commotion", hullabaloo [huhl-uh-buh-loo] is one of those words that is just plain fun to say. :)   I started writing a sentence using the word last week, for this post, and it ended up turning into a long poem that I'm still working on!  Guess I'll have to come up with another example instead!  How about this?:

The class of fifth graders zigzagged through the gym, bouncing basketballs, shouting, and creating a hullabaloo -- along with a headache for their teacher.

What kind of hullabaloos have you heard in your life?  What ways could you use hullabaloo in a sentence?
