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!"

Someone's going to get a spanking

Prince Turki al-Faisal, the Saudi ambassador to Britain and Ireland, tells the British press that the war in Iraq is "colonial" in nature and all about the O-I-L.

Someone (who knows a little something about oil) has pulled back the curtain and is due for a paddling.

"Talking out of turn ... that's a paddling. Looking out the window ... that's a paddling. Staring at my sandals ... that's a paddling. Giving the American public an honest glimpse into U.S. foreign policy ... ooh, you better believe that's a paddling."
