Are you now, or have you ever been,in Cahoots?

 Cahoots is a strange word isn't it? The two were in cahoots with each other.

What the heck does it mean? I dunno. Here is what merriam webster online dictionary says: 

Definition of cahoot

PARTNERSHIPLEAGUE usually used in pluralthey're in cahootsHe was robbed by a man who was in cahoots with the bartender.Not much of a definition, is it? 
“I ha’nt read newspapers for nothing–Gin’ral Government and the ministration are going in cahoot to undermine and overrule the undertakings of the free People of Georgia.”
