A fudge is an inelegant or clumsy solution to a problem. Usually a quick fix, will more often than not come back to haunt you if you don’t fix it properly later, and almost always not supported by the manufacturer. The occasional ‘dirty fudge’ or superlative ‘filthy fudge’ are indications of the extremity of the inelegance.

May also be used as a verb:

“The licence activation doesn’t work properly, so I fudged it instead.”

(Not this kind of Fudge)

    Up here in Sunny Scotland, we use the phrase “kludge”. In dealing with the assorted dross we’re expected to support, it’s a phrase I use on an almost daily basis alongside other well-known phrases unsuitable for a family friendly establishment like this.
