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!"

Workplace Distraction

For the East Coasters, it's already happened; but for the West Coasters, it has not yet begun: Jack Black co-hosting the MTV Movie Awards. Let me assure you with every ounce of my being that, unless JB were hosting (which he is, so I guess there's no need for the subjunctive), I would be as far away from the TeeVee as humanly possible. Like, at least 20 feet. But he is hosting, so I've got to watch. I don't know how I feel about this Jack Black/Tenacious D overexposure that's going on, but I've got to be supportive of JB's career, regardless of my desire to hoard the D for my own political and financial gain. The D would be best kept deep down in the dark tunnels of the mainstream consciousness, far away from prying eyes. But then again, I would be a horrible agent. Long live the D.
