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 band is back together

I've just gotten an exciting report that Nipple, San Francisco's premiere acoustic rock duo, held a surprise concert at Club Joe, located near the Golden Gate Park Panhandle at 1878 Page Street #102. I haven't been this excited since I heard a rare reprise of Nipple's improvised classic, "Toilet Melon Strut."

Nipple is:

Robert Grohs: lead vocals, rhythm and lead guitar, cigarette lighter slide
Brian Jeffrey Joe: vocals, lead and rhythm guitar

Here's the set from 5/7/05
