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

Have you ever thought about this line courtesy of esteemed poet laureate Axl Rose? -- "With your bitch-slap rappin' and your cocaine tongue you get nothing done." So I guess "bitch-slap rappin" could be defined as "talk of a quality such that it warrants the bitch-slapping of the speaker?" I used to think maybe it could be, "with your bitch slap-rappin' ... ", as in, "hey, tell your bitch to stop slap-rappin', I'm trying to cook the crystal meth." I don't know, the idea of "slap rappin" is evocative to me for some reason. It could be the next big sensation. Like in 8 Mile, when they're having a rap standoff, they could smack each other a la The Three Stooges after their various exchanges. I don't know. I'm just an idea man. It's up to one of you MCs out there to take the concept and run with it.
