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!"

Water into wine

Jesus' most overrated miracle had to have been turning water into wine, right? At first, I'm sure it seemed like a good idea. They didn't have any alcohol, no one was on the dance floor, the bride and groom were bummed. And then Jesus -- that legendary party animal -- was like, "Check this out, bros!" and did his thing.

But it probably didn't seem that smart the next morning, when everyone woke up hung over and dehydrated, in the middle of a desert, without any water.

"Hey, what happened to all the water?"
-- "Don't you remember? Jesus turned it all into wine."
"Are you serious? What kind of a ... ? Nice job, Jesus! Appreciate it, buddy."
