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!"

Blogging a Tweet

Via John Hodgman's Twitter feed, here's a true statement from some other dude on Twitter:

TV poker offers a gripping glimpse into the high-stakes, winner-take-all world of wasting your life watching douchebags in sunglasses scowl.

Let me add this about sunglasses and professional poker: Do poker tournaments have any sort of dress code? Kind of decreases the level of difficulty when you can wear a hat low over your eyes and sunglasses, a la Chris Moneymaker. I'd like to enter a tournament wearing a Darth Vader helmet and see if anyone would stop me.
