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!"

At the White House:

Condaleeza Rice: Mr. President, it's time for your briefing.

George W. Bush: Does that mean I get to debrief you, Condy?

Rice: Mr. President, you're so fresh! But you know there's no use flirting with me. I had my clitoris removed years ago.

Bush: Oh that's right. You mentioned that on the application. Well, it doesn't hurt to remind me. (Using Dr. Evil voice) "Throw me a frickin' bone here, Condy. I'm the boss. Need the info." Heh heh. How's my Dr. Evil impression comin' along, Condy?

Rice: It's getting better, sir. Very funny.
