macrodactylous misarchism

A piece of spam email that got past my spam filters the other day included a link to a web page that had the filename macrodactylous_misarchism.html.

I suspect that the filename was generated by software that took two random words and strung them together; sadly, there don’t seem to be any web pages that are about macrodactylous misarchism per se. But I’m nonetheless tickled by the phrase. I’m guessing that it would mean long-fingered bad government, which I assume would be a poetic way of describing a kleptocracy.
