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!"

"If it looks like duck and quack like duck, it means duck"

This quote from Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky, in a Drudge advance of an upcoming "60 Minutes" story on the case of the Russian spy who was fatally poisoned in London.

Yes, comrade. And if shoe fits, wear it around block few times, then throw stone through glass house.

And if you can't beat them, join them at hip. There is many cats to skin.

Also, what good for goose, is good for gander. I will cut off nose, face. I spite you!
