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!"

I for one

Thoroughly enjoyed the butt-kicking that the Spurs laid on the Pistons Sunday, and I look forward to more of the same tonight.

So much to blog about, including the new Star Wars, but I don't have an Internet connection at home right now and am forced to Fed Ex Kinko's, where inept and/or crazy people provide constant distractions and irritations, most notably the "Shouldn't you be having this conversation in private?" cell phone tirades in which the personality traits that have led these individuals to this moment in their invariably sad lives are laid out for all to see, though somehow I sense I'm the only one who is involunatarily formulating psychological evaluations in this particular Kinko's, located at the corner of Clay Street and Van Ness Avenue.
