After Shashi Tharoor responded to Arnab Goswami's newly launched Republic TV and their big "expose" in the Sunanda Pushkar case, there was only one thing that the nation wanted to know.
What the heck is 'farrago'?
Since 'why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?' no question has haunted India so much.
Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter to express his exasperation, frustration and condemnation (somewhere in Tamil Nadu, T Rajendar is taking notes) with the series of allegations levelled against him by Republic TV. But the beleaguered MP became the butt of jokes as Twitter exploded with jokes about his nearly incomprehensible tweet:
Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations&outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalstâ€” Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) May 8, 2017
Suddenly, Google was exploding with search queries for the word 'farrago'.
People fell in love with the expression so much that they couldn't stop using it.

Even if those around them reacted like this:

What if the police took a cue from Tharoor on course of the investigation?

Shashi - I don't know
Police - Exasperating farrago of distortion, misinterpretation, and outright lies.
We look up to our leaders to teach us. More vocabulary lessons are always welcome.

Watch out children, 'farrago' is sure to feature in your school exams next!
Shashi Tharoor decided enough was enough and went from 'farrago' to SMS language. How farrago will he go to defend himself, HAAN?
After his farrago tweet, Shashi Tharoor totally dumbed it down with SMS language. https://t.co/uIMgkc3oFSâ€” Ravi Kiran (@ravikiran_j) May 9, 2017

Have you seen Arnab Goswami silenced by anyone? It might have finally happened.
For the record, 'farrago' means 'confused mixture'. You're welcome.
