Random information on the term “Brouhaha”:
Tempest in a teapot (American English), or storm in a teacup (British English), is an idiom meaning a small event that has been exaggerated out of proportion. There are also lesser known or earlier variants, such as tempest in a teacup, storm in a cream bowl, tempest in a glass of water, storm in a wash-hand basin, and storm in a glass of water.
Cicero, in the first century BC, in his De Legibus, used a similar phrase in Latin, possibly the precursor to the modern expressions, “Excitabat enim fluctus in simpulo ut dicitur Gratidius”, translated: “For Gratidius raised a tempest in a ladle, as the saying is”. Then in the early third century AD, Athenaeus, in the Deipnosophistae, has Dorion ridiculing the description of a tempest in the Nautilus of Timotheus by saying that he had seen a more formidable storm in a boiling saucepan. The phrase also appeared in its French form “une tempête dans un verre d’eau” (a tempest in a glass of water), to refer to the popular uprising in the Republic of Geneva near the end of the eighteenth century.
