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!"

An excerpt from Patricia Ryan's Secret Thunder, found in early 2002 on a bench of the Dolores Park tennis courts, San Francisco:

"A kind of kittenish growl rose from her, and her hips moved -- just slightly, but enough to spark a hot, answering pulse in his loins ...

"She was damp; he felt it even through her kirtle. Suddenly impatient, he whipped her skirt up and lay next to her; she turned to face him ... He searched her eyes as he slid his fingers deep into her exceedingly narrow entrance. Her gaze lost its focus, and she sucked in a tremulous breath. He stroked her with slow, inquisitive fingers, enthralled by her slippery heat ...

"Taking her free hand in his, he guided it between his legs, pressing it to his aching shaft, hoping it wouldn't offend her ... A spasm of pleasure sucked the breath from his lungs. He was as hard as a column of steel. She drew her hand up and down his length, squeezing with just the right pressure, and he groaned helplessly. 'Ah Faithe ...' Luke rocked his hips in time with her caress. 'Yes.' "
