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!"

Finally, The Rock has come back to the Senate Sub-Committee on Agriculture and Animal Husbandry! No, sorry. Finally, Phish is appearing on Saturday Night Live, it has been announced. It's about six fucking years too late, but I'll take it.

What is absolutely priceless is the fact that Al Gore will be the host that night. "Ladies and gentleman, the groovy tunes of Phish!"

Good move by Gore, but this too probably comes too late. If his appearance is a success, if he can poke fun at himself credibly and connect with the audience, he'll keep his sad little hopes for the 2004 Democratic nomination alive for a little while longer.
