A magoozle is a method by which we get things done in America. It's neither legal or illegal, but it gets the job done.
from Doc Maynard: The Man Who Invented Seattle by Bill Speidel
Joe is taking forever to process your request, so - instead of contacting your boss and escalating through official channels - you take Joe out for a drink and generate some goodwill. Or, you just do it anyway. Either way, the job gets done... from inside the gray area. That's a magoozle!
