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!"

Though unhip film critics across the land lambasted it as one of the most odiferous pieces of tripe ever to grace your local multiplex, I am going to go on record as saying "Kung Pow," the kung fu satire flick, is funny as shit. That being said, I can only vouch for the movie when it is seen high. If you're sobes and you don't like it, you can't hold me responsible.

Why are people still watching "American Idol"? Haven't they eliminated everyone but Dr. Afro and Meadow Soprano yet? (Wanna know what the Safeway brand Mr. Pibb/Dr. Pepper knockoff is called? Dr. Skipper.) The only good part was watching the incredibly bad people at the beginning, before they were elimidated.
