HOGWASH word YEGG

I found this word and thought it would be a good hogwash word so I'm starting a new round with the word...

YEGG

The participants in this game are to suggest a meaning for this word, a spurious definition (known as 'daffynitions') and submit them (by private message ) to me, bexter.

You have a se'nnight to send your ideas in and then your genius daffynitions will be posted and voting will begin. (I may be persuaded to extend this period if necessary).

I'm looking for the most imaginative meaning, not necessary the real meaning, as it will be revealed at the end of the game
because, you all know...no cheating. Do not use a dictionary or google the word.

This is my first hogwash round so have fun everyone.

(apologies if it goes bottoms up at any time!)

Should be fun. I have my daffynition already, and will
send it soon. Thanks for starting a new one. A fun
part of this site for sure.

Chalk me up as one who knows this word. I don't think I'm the only one but if I am I can play along and vote for the best daffynition.

No. I'm saying that I know the word and I would think that many others would, too, so it's probably not a good Hogwash word. I could make up a def and vote on one I know is wrong just because I think it's a good daffynition. But then I might vote for the right definition with a prior agreement with bexter that my vote didn't count. Just so you don't eliminate any choice just because I voted for it.

as in the song by J.Ralph - Kansas City Shuffle
and the movie with Bruce Willis, Lucky Number Slevin'

using misdirection, subterfuge.

"A Kansas City Shuffle is when everybody looks left, you go right."

I don't know the word. I will give it a try if you get enough
clients for this word. Would be nice to know a bit about this. It's a busy time of the year.
