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!"

Celebrity lookalikes

I love Stanley Kubrick. He may be my favorite film director. But, in this photo, my man looks a lot like Moqtada al-Sadr.

In Kubrick's defense, he probably hadn't showered/slept in a while when this shot was taken. And it was taken during the shoot of "The Shining," I believe, so maybe he was channeling Jack Torrance.
As for as-Sadr, do you think he practices glowering in the mirror? Like Zoolander's "Blue Steel," the menacing glower is Moqtada's signature look.
