Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

And now, a scene from "Charlie Chan 2003":

#1 Son: "Hey Pop! Long time no see! How are ya?"

Charlie Chan: "Father who spend much time away from home, investigating murder, raise offspring who is total dillweed."

#1 Son: "Say, Pop! That's not very nice."

Chan: "Wipe smile off face, please, before I remove same."

#1 Son: "Gee, Pop! What's gotten into you?"

Chan: "Goofiness of Americanized #1 son drive humble investigator insane. If #1 son is chip off of old chopstick, then father want to eat in different restaurant."

Look for it in theaters next summer.
