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!"

Culture, Humor, Sports
Workplace Distraction

Sunday, June 16, 2002

The people (all male) who attend major golf tournaments, such as the U.S. Open, which Tiger Woods won today, and shout "Get in the hole!" as soon as a golfer strikes the ball with his club comprise the absolute lowest order (and most repellant ordure) of humanity. I was exposed to a few seconds of this phenomenon today and it was enough to make me apply a cold compress and lie down for an hour in a dark room. This is mostly an aesthetic judgement on my part but I'm deducing the reasoning behind this nausea of mine as we speak and, trust me, it will be a revelation.
