Term used when a black person fabricates a ridiculous story for no apparent reason, or as a stall tactic as seen in the example #2 below. The information is rarely, if ever convincing. The entire story is irritating, complicated, or consists of a confusing sequence of events; especially events that seem unnecessary or absurd, and at times there may be no discernible meaning whatsoever.
Example #1-
Simple example of nigamarole:
You hear Derrick over there talkin' all that nigamarole? What is that boy drinking? I never heard such nonsense balled up into one crunk ass story in my life!

Example #2-
Detailed example of a lot of nigamarole:
Officer:
You are under arrest for....
Ry-Ry:
But officer, please listen, you have to hear me out first. This is all very purulent information. I was about 5 or 10 years old and I was livin with my Auntie Sharice down on 76th Street. It was blazing hot, and I had just shimmied outside to go to the bathroom. Next thing I know, *Zap-Bam*, out of nowhere a mango tree got struck by lightning and snapped into about 37 interconnected pieces. Can you even imagine; there I was, holding my glorious junk in both hands; peeing into a recycle bin. It was awful, I was nearly paralyzed by fear. It felt like someone had put anti-freeze in juicey juice box again. So do you understand now officer?
Officer:
No sir, and I don't think I ever will or want to. You are 36 years old, under arrest for armed robbery, and talking absolute nonsense about urinating in a recycle bin as a child and being paralyzed by antifreeze? And what on earth is purulent information? I have absolutely no idea what the hell you are talking about. Now please stop with all that "nigamarole" and put your hands behind your back.
