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

Somehow I've melded in my head the Johnny Jenkins cover of "Walk on Gilded Splinters," (off volume I of the Duane Allman Anthology) with Ice Cube's "Givin' up the Nappy Dug Out." When reminded of "Gilded Splinters," I'll sometimes hear the outline of a chorus that goes like this:
"Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters
I'm gonna do that thing with your daughter
Givin' up the nappy dug out!"

First of all, no wonder I could never figure out the first part of the chorus to that song until I looked it up on the old Internet just now. "Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon?"
