what is a 'rigermeriol' (spelling?)?

I heard someone say "we've gotta get this rigermeriol running and fast!" but I don't know the meaning of 'rigermeriol'?

rig·ma·role (rĭg'mə-rōl') pronunciation also rig·a·ma·role (-ə-mə-rōl')

1. Confused, rambling, or incoherent discourse; nonsense.
2. A complicated, petty set of procedures.

[Alteration of obsolete ragman roll, catalog, from Middle English ragmane rolle, scroll used in Ragman, a game of chance : perhaps from Anglo-Norman Ragemon le bon, Ragemon the Good, title of a set of verses about a character of this name + Middle English rolle, list (from Old French, from Latin rotula, wheel; see roll).]
