White Rabbits

Perhaps if my first words this morning had been white rabbits instead of "f*&%^$ng hell!" then today might have gone better. Then again I think the gods have got it in for us this month. They must know that we all have three weeks off coming up and so they are deciding to make us work now for our pleasure later. We got royally shafted today. Our funeral buffet for thirty rapidly evolved into a bunfight for at least 70 covers. It was hard to get an accurate head count when the buggers keep moving around. So I guess that eclipses our previous record of 54 covers by at least 16. Hopefully it will be a long time before we repeat that fiasco again.

What's a 'bunfight'? I read this all the time and I have to admit I'm stumped on this Briticism. Help a fellow out will you?

I suppose the closest description would be a foodfight. Its usually used to describe a chaotic situation - ie the scrimmage during the first day of the sales, the appearance of the food lorries in any famine area, etc etc.
