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!"

A couple people have notified me that the Redskins' new unis are actually retro, what they used to wear when Sonny Jurgenson was slinging the old pigskin. (Incidentally, isn't he the dumb yahoo who does the Redskins' radio broadcasts? I once listened to a Redskins broadcast of an Eagles-Skins game driving up to Philly from Virginia or somewhere and one of the color guys -- I think it was Jurgenson -- was mind-bogglingly inane and biased. I'm reminded of Jerry Lawler from the WWF (now WWE) who is always screaming shit to his partner like, "Oh my God, what's going on JR? He's not grabbing the tazer, is he?" "He certainly is, Jerry." ) Anyway, I still think those new unis suck. And they only wear them half the time, which is odd. Anyway, enough sports.

Good for Al Gore to come out against the Iraq war plan. Not that Al Gore is whom I'd vote for, but it's time to start thinking about getting Bush and Co. the hell out of office in 2004.
