Multiple Meanings
farce — as in:  the meeting was a farce

The peace talks have become a farce.
a situation that is so badly organized or going so poorly that it seems ridiculous


a situation that is made to look like one thing, but is really another

or more specifically:

a situation that is supposed to be fair, but is completely unfair
farce — as in:  farce at the theatre

My favorite farce is Shaw’s, The Importance of Being Earnest.
a comedy with whacky improbable situations

Much more rarely, farce can reference a seasoned stuffing typically put in roasted turkey; or it can reference the act of stuffing a turkey.
