A dead or severly wounded children's entertainer (usally a clown) atop a dining table. Flageeli (plural form) are most often radom events during religious festivals.
From Flagol the gnome from the novel 'A tale of 32 urban zones: The german susage dog story'
No flagle before it, nor any hereafter could surpass the splender of this one; the dead man, dressed as "DOODEEDOO!" was coverd from head to foot in a mixture of Golden syrup, fruit glaze and shaving cream which made him glow like a thousand bald men. "What is this splended flagle?" Asked those gathered in that place, "and who can make such a thing?". - Exert from 'The Teletubys do New York'
