I've never before heard kludge, which webster.com says also has alternate spelling kluge. They also kindly pronounce it for you, rhyming it with stooge, or alternate pronounciation is two sylables klug-ee. Etymology unknown, the meaning is a lot more restricted only having to do with computers. There are a lot of sound changes that are regular between German and English, and g to j is not a common one. That doesn't mean it can't be though, lots of fluke sound changes as well as the regular ones.

Bee Dubya, I think what we are doing is commonly known as bickering. Isn't it a fun game?
