Noodge theory, anyone?

The dictionary at my desk derives it "< Yidd nudyen, to be tedious, bore < Russ nudnii, tedious" and defines it as "to keep urging, asking, etc. in an annoying way; nag."

Now, I had understood it as a noun, one who noodges. But either way, it's as good a theory as any for IT consulting.
