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!"

Great moments in presidential announcing

Obama showed his sense of humor while sitting in with announcers Vern Lundquist and Clark Kellogg today during Georgetowns's beatdown of Duke. Kellogg complemented Obama's analysis of a replay, prompting the president to say:

"After retirement I'm coming after your job, Clark. Just lettin' you know, so you either have three more years or seven, I'm not sure which, but you need to plan accordingly, because I'm going to do some play-by-play."

Kellogg is a color guy, not play-by-play, so a slight point deduction there, but still, those was some pretty good snaps.
