Raising a fruckus

Looks like a melee between a fracas and a ruckus. Inspired by the recent fraca about fracas.

I don’t want to cause a fruckus, but would a PS4 game case work? … h/75417420

This is the BEST colt I have ever had the priviledge to own, and I would NOT part with him if I had my own farm, but I don’t and there is already 2 stallions at the facility he’s at and not enough pasture to put him out without causing a fruckus! … -for-sale/

But soon the Germans appear on the horizon, an intimidating army, and it’s clear that, lake or no, a fruckus will soon occur.

Re: Raising a fruckus
