: to deceive by flattery or sweet talk, to swindle or cheat
"After leaving the state fair, I was sure the crafty carnies honeyfuggled me out of a lot of money at the midway games trying to win a $5 stuffed dog, a big foam hat or a cheap alarm clock."
*Based on numerous empirical (and expensive!) observations. The hoop is too small for the basketball, it's impossible to shoot out all of that red star using only 50 BB's with the machine gun, and you can never get that quarter to stay in the shallow dish. I still try, though (I may win the dog someday --you can have the hat and the alarm clock).
