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!"

Is Nirvana the most overrated band of all time? Discuss. Hey, just because music sucked ass around the time Nirvana came on the scene doesn't make them any better, objectively. Popular music sucks ass now. I like Nirvana, but let's not get carried away. If Warrant's "Cherry Pie" weren't there to act as a foil and make any orangutan look like a guy "from the streets" who "keeps it real" by comparison, where would Nirvana be? Where would Dave Grohl be? One of my faults with JB of Tenacious D, you know, Jack Black, is that he's buds with Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters. But really, what the hell do I know about Dave Grohl, except that he's an insipid songwriter?
