What is Monkey Patching?

I came across this buzz word while I was reading something on unit testing. The concept is not new but the term is new for me. Monkey Patching is a term mostly used in context of Python and unit testing. This means modifying the code in a dynamic programming language at run time without affecting the source code.

Please refer the following wiki page for details about Monkey Patch.
