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!"

The Founding Father of Intensity

This is really funny. Originally linked to by Atrios, the lawsuit-threat saga that played out between one of the editors at SomethingAwful.com and the man formerly known as wrestler The Ultimate Warrior (who does, in fact, call himself the founding father of intensity), is worth a thorough read.

I'm not sure which is funnier. The repeated mocking of the Warrior's bicycle streamers or the sheer incompetence of a lawyer/administrative assistant whose threat of lawsuit quickly devolves into thinly veiled threats of personal harm.
