shart(2)

blending blending of two words; noun
a fart which contains a small quantity of poop in it.
 
Shart is a blending of the words shit and fart. Shart is a fairly even blending of the definition of the two words. Neither fart nor shit would be adequate to properly describe the niche that shart fills, but both capture a portion of the definition of shart. The reason for shart’s existence is in the importance of understanding exactly why a room has sudden and significantly altered in smell for the worse. If such an olfactory change has occurred simply because of a fart, then little panic is required from the room’s occupants, other than to cover their mouths and noses to protect themselves from the emanating stench. If the stench is due to someone shitting their pants however, the required reaction from the room’s inhabitants becomes significantly more noticeable, as they will often need to run for the hills and escape the confines of the habitat until the offender has dealt with the sudden mess they have created. A shart fills some of the gap between these two very different possibilities, and allows room members to know that they may need to take some degree of evasive maneuvers to rapidly leave the presence of the sharter, but need to be nowhere near as fearful as they would in the case of a full on shitting.
Etymology : Shart was formed by blending the words shit and fart.
