Saturday-night special

Saturday-night special: [from police slang for a cheap handgun]
   n.  A quick-and-dirty program or feature kluged together
   during off hours, under a deadline, and in response to pressure
   from a salescritter.  Such hacks are dangerously unreliable,
   but all too often sneak into a production release after
   insufficient review.
