A quick and dirty job, something done very hastily. Make it look good for the next day or two and if it falls down after that, it's alright.

verb, with the literal meaning "to put a square peg in a round hole." This is referring to a scene from Apollo 13. Generally, to bodge is to repair hastily and without care of durability or aesthetics or perfection. Popularized in British television show "Scrapheap Challenge," known as "Junkyard Wars" in the US, and by producer Cathy Rodgers.
Your task is to bodge together a hovercraft from nothing but twisted metal, scrapped cars, and other assorted bits of rubbish!

In the professional electronics industry:

A bodge is an inelegant but workable “fix” applied to extend functionality or correct a problem. Reliability can be reduced due to the mechanical construction, but this is not an essential requirement for the fix to be considered as a bodge.

It is quite possible to create a new interface printed circuit board (PCB) without any reliability issues, but this board can be referred to as a “bodge board” simply because it is an inelegant after-thought.

Things which start off life as bodges can later be properly incorporated into the design and then get magically transformed into standard practice.

Software (especially embedded software) and firmware can also be bodged. This might be used when pushed to ship workable code, where some error condition causes a software crash. You don’t understand where the error is coming from but you trap the error and ship the system anyway. (Hoping to fix the error properly later.)
>The only thing I can do in the time available is to bodge the software by ignoring any data lines which have zero length.

>So, you want to fit the larger transformer into the case by putting a “power bulge” on the back panel. What a bodge!

>We need to ship this unit a soon as possible. How long will it take to get the bodge-board designed and tested?

>I know it is a bit of a bodge, but if you inter-link the power rails with a diode between the output terminal blocks, the system will start up reliably every time.

Gastric state of being overly full, with no room for even a morsel more of food.
Thank you, I'll pass. I am positively bodge. There are some who suggest that to avoid being bodge one should not eat anything larger than one's head.
