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

Tuesday, June 04, 2002

Moving from surface-launched missiles with nuclear payloads to pocket rockets, I was perusing Nerve.com, the sex-oriented web site, for the first time this evening and was unfortunate enough to come across an article that referenced a web site called "Ratemycock.com." You guessed it. Like "Hotornot.com," only its raison d'etre is the male genitalia. I'm not even going to hyperlink this shit. You'll have to type it into the browser yourself once you have left your workplace. The ratings apparently are such that the site begins with the largest units and goes from there and let me tell you, I am plunging into a deep spiral of inadequacy and psychic distress. I need a beer, a Xanax or a strong blow to the head or, preferably, all three in rapid succession. Anything to make it all go away.
