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.”

    1. Thank you, went to the link and appears to be about the same as what i found. Still, it is a strange word. Kind of like my paycheck: Strange, how it disappears
