noun - especially in business, the modern equivalent of "the hot potato" of years past. An unwelcome assignment or a set-up of one employee against another. Comes from the prank of putting lots of fresh dog turds in a paper bag, setting it on fire, placing it on the victim's doorstep and ringing the doorbell. The victim inevitable stomps on it to extinguish the flames and ends up with a hell of a mess on the porch and on his shoes.
"The boss handed me another flaming fudgebag this morning".
